Robin Williams is a Genius

My friend and I were watching, “Robin Williams On Broadway”. We both were laughing and enjoying the antics of Robin Williams when my friend exclaimed, “Robin Williams is a genius.”

And without thinking I replied, “Yes he is a genius and a skilled master.”

My friend responded, “He is a genius.” I repeated my statement. My friend could see only the art.

Because I am trained in the skill – I saw and appreciated the technique.

Learning points:
We see what we are trained to see.

Presentation skills are more about learned skill than talent.
