"You're so lucky, you're a genius."  Ever said that to somebody? 

There's a pervasive sense that some of us are gifted, and some of us are simply not.  Not so, says Allen Gannett. 

He's a big believer in big data, and he's used that data to figure out that the really successful people in the world are NOT necessarily geniuses. 

Gannett studied the methods and outcomes of people who achieved commercial success, and put what he learned into a book: The Creative Curve: How to Develop the Right Idea at the Right Time. The author joins us to talk about the basic principles common to great successes.
