from a Steve Martin quote
Don't follow your PassIon
Be SoGoodTheyCantIgnoreYou - develop MastEry
Decide what Career Capital Market you're in (Winner Take All (single skill/metric defines success) vs Auction (variety of skills could lead to success))
Identify your Capital type - (in any Winner Take All market there's only 1 type)
- Define "Good"
Be Patient - FoCus
Turn down a Promotion (Self Determination)
Missions require Capital - Advancing to the cutting edge in a field is an act of "small" thinking, requiring you to FoCus on a narrow collection of subjects for a potentially long time. Once you get to the cutting edge, however, and discover a mission in the Adjacent Possible, you must go after it with zeal: a "big" (Remark Able) action.
Missions require Little Bet-s
