Hard Easy Realization -

Is just this: if you think you can make contributions to the world without steeping yourself in already existent knowledge, data, experience, and already established fact, I think you're probably wrong.

Said a different way: If you think that you can be successful by being totally anomalous, you're probably wrong.  There are counter-examples, sure.  But most people who have "made it" have successfully synthesized fields of knowledge,  and made a ton of errors, before they strike out into uncharted territory.
