Gelb describes how one of the world’s greatest inventors, Thomas Edison, worked, “Edison was always oriented to finding solutions. He was not afraid of facing, or defining any kind of problem, and he took on huge problems like how do you light the entire world, which was considered to be utterly impossible at the time.” Tune in and discover how to wake up your own sleeping genius.
