Outliers

I have recently started reading “Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell, a NY Times staff writer. This is a book that challenges the societal notions of success to gain a better understanding of why some people succeed while others never reach their goals. It is definitely worth checking out if this type of analysis interests you.

– “Hard work is a prison sentence only if it does not have meaning. Once it does, it becomes the kind of thing that makes you grab your wife around the waist and dance a jig.”

– “Outliers are those who have been given opportunities—and who have had the strength and presence of mind to seize them.”

– “Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.”
