Brilliant, but useless

Gone are the days when the brilliant scientist could work alone in his lab, oblivious to the external world and expect the world to come knocking on his door.
If you are good at something, you need to develop the ability to convey the usefulness of your craft in  simple language to those that can benefit from it.
Appreciation from your peers is important, but inability to communicate with people totally unrelated to your area of expertise can be a serious handicap.
There is nothing glorious in being a misunderstood genius, living your whole life filled with bitterness and regret that the world failed to recognize your brilliance.
Your purpose in life is to be of use to people.
Come out and talk!
