I read that in order to excel at something the first and foremost thing to do is spend an inordinate amount of time at it. Talent comes into play of course, but not so much as rigorous, disciplined, day-to-day work. There is no such thing as success without an effort. In light of this: since I don’t work hard at anything whatsoever, I really shouldn’t be writing these silly blog posts either. There is no added value.
