Be careful not to take advice from people just because they’re successful.
Many intelligent people have won in life because they were smart and lucky.
But they don’t realize they were lucky. They only see the hard work they put into something.
So when they tell you what to do, they don’t realize the advice they gave only worked for them because many other things went right.
You have to learn from others, but don’t let the fact that they’ve succeeded where you haven’t make you think you should do everything they say.
Be smart, work hard, and optimize for luck. But always take into account your specific situation. Don’t just do whatever people say is the best thing to do unless you judge it to be the right thing to do today.
