For all we know, that successful person could have had a billionaire backer.
Or been blessed with talent we don’t possess.
Or simply figured it out.
Or got lucky.
You could spend months analyzing and assessing how this person is someone exceptional that you will likely never been. And those months would be utterly wasted because they keep you from spending time on the things that will truly benefit your career: strengthening your expertise, feeding your curiosity, and delighting others.
A much better return on your time.
