Hi Jessica Wildfire I agree with you 100%.

I don’t know if you’ve ever read the book Fooled By Randomness, but it talks about the uncomfortably high amount of luck and randomness contributes to outcomes in life. Walt Disney got funding at the right time right before he went bankrupt. Bill Gates was born at the right time, had the right circumstances, and went to the right school with the right computer lab. Replay his life 1,000,000,000,0000,000,000,000 times and maaaaybe he becomes the founder of Microsoft once. If that.

Best we can do is put the right “ingredients” into our work — like you said — and see what happens.

Great post.
