> Isn’t it amazing that we’d rather call ourselves stupid than lazy? At least laziness is easy to fix.

> People say that they are not gifted/talented/smart enough to play the trumpet/learn to code/write a book. That’s crazy. Sure, it may be that they don’t possess world-class talent, the sort of stuff that is one in a million. But too stupid to do something that millions and millions of people can do?
