The Distance Between Insanity and Genius – Bruce Feirstein

Updated on March 21st, 2023

“The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success.”

– Bruce Feirstein
Not everyone has tasted success, but most people are intimately acquainted with failure. This is why those who reach for beyond their view are often taken with skepticism when they share their ideas. When they say things like, “I want to build a tech company” but have no financial means of doing so, they are met with polite nods. When they say, “I want to freelance for a year and travel around the world.” the people whom they are speaking to respond with, “Wouldn’t that be nice!” When they succeed, people are astounded. If the difference between a dream and a reality is success, certainly, as Feirstein says, the distance between insanity and genius must be measured in success as well.
