"And I know that lots of advice on doing well at things (any things, really) is phrased as 'here are the values and outlooks and skills of the successful people; be like them', but so much of that is bullshit. If any of said advice actually helps or inspires you, by all means go for it, but it isn't worth it to angst about not fitting a model someone else constructed after the fact to explain their own or others' success in a way that minimizes signs of luck and maximizes the appearance of various good qualities." -- [personal profile] luinied
