We can learn a lot about success if we look at successful people. There’s the temptation to look at their experiences and then copy what they did. After all it worked for them. When people do this they often try to copy the few things which supposedly helped the successful person break through: try to meet a famous person or do some one-off creative stunt. Yet these life-turning events and happy accidents would usually not have happened without the work that these people put in. Copy and modify habits instead of life happenstances. What makes someone continuously successful is a mixture between skills and putting the work in. The randomness by which someone discovers you can only come if you have created something worth discovering.
