Luck

"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."

-- Seneca

(And what an opportunity for Mabel's Labels, the Canadian company that made the personalized bag-tags given with birthday party loot bags for Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling's son Liam. Congratulations Mabel's!)

Success

Over at Non-Stick Plans, Michael recently posted Ronald Searle’s three requirements for success:

  • working discipline,
  • absolute command of the medium and
  • constant productivity.
To a certain extent, this is true. However, there is a at least one more ingredient. Circumstance (family, culture, friendship, opportunity and chance) also plays a role in an individual's success, as discussed in Malcolm Gladwell's, book Outliers.

Nonetheless, Searle's thoughts overlap nicely with Gladwell's "10,000-Hour Rule." ("No one gets to the top unless he or she puts in 10,000 hours of practice in a field, be it computer software, hockey, music, or law." -- Business Week review of Outliers)
