Everyone is a genius, or was once. Tragically, life stifles the genius within most people in the work world. This smothering begins in childhood, and, by the time most people become adults, their genius languishes beneath a slag heap of convention and custom. In her inspiring book, exuberant personal development whiz Gina Amaro Rudan explains how you can tap into your natural genius and rev up your life. Rudan’s ideas are not groundbreaking, but her joyful, infectious enthusiasm elevates these familiar concepts beyond the usual self-help fare. getAbstract recommends Rudan’s iconoclastic manual to those inclined toward self-development who yearn to live life fearlessly to the fullest.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to identify and liberate the “practical genius” within you,
- How to express and sustain your genius, and
- How to associate with other practical geniuses.
