Why some people are not just some people?
Every industry has a bar. A level which is termed excellence.

They have a personal standard, and boy, that is incredibly high.
A David Ogilvy, A Stephen King, A Henry Ford, A Ansel Adams.

“I would almost say that the best screen actor is the man who can do nothing extremely well.”
