Wright Brothers as well all know invented the first airplane.
But if we look book at history we can find that Samuel Langley was more equipped than the Wright Brothers , yet could not achieve what the Wright Brothers did.
Langley had a passion for aeronautics and knew WHAT he needed to do.He did not have a CAUSE to champion and more than anything else fame , earning money was his driving motivation.There was no clear sense of WHY.
Contrast this with the Wright Brothers , they clearly knew WHY it was important to build the plane.Not a single person working with the Wright Brothers had college education.
They imagined the benefits to everyone else if they were successful , they had the clear sense of WHY.Rest as they say is history.
