But this $150, bluetooth-equipped Star Trek communicator is going to enable my bad habits even further—and my friends will hate me for it.

Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.
