Legendary

What does somebody need to do to be a legend? People often speak of “legends” in a specific field or moment in time. I’m curious about this. Is there a way to get onto a fast track program?

Is it even possible for legends to exist in this modern day ADHD world. It seems like people get bored so quickly of hearing about the same person over and over that i would imagine that we don’t allow legends to come into being. Lord knows I have tried.

The way I see it (and this is merely my opinion):
A great man breaks the mold. A legendary man creates one.

There are many great people who stand out and do things that are original or groundbreaking. However, when I hear about a legend, it is usually the someone who created something that was so revolutionary, innovative, and/or out of reach that there was no ‘mold’ to even compare it to.
