There’s no doubt that Archimedes was one of the greatest brains, the greatest out-of-the-box-thinking, inventive mindsets that has ever lived.
Even having lived ~2,300 years ago in Sicily, Archimedes has no equal.
The History Channel once said about him, “Could Archimedes really have used 21st century technology to develop weapons of mass destruction?” *Google “Archimedes Solar Death Ray”
I talk a lot here about people, how they think, why they think that way, and what makes them think that way.
Are you an out of the box thinker? Are you a rule follower that gets everything from your brain that you can?
There is no right or wrong answer to these questions. It only matters that you get the best from yourself through comfortable methods.
