If you work at something long enough and eventually succeed, people will call you lucky.

The point here isn’t that those people are “wrong” in an absolute sense. The outside world will only ever see the outcome—not all of the inputs along the way. The outcome may seem lucky without knowledge of the intensity and consistency of inputs required to achieve it.

The Luck Razor: When choosing between two paths, choose the path that has a larger luck surface area. Your actions can put you in a position where luck is more likely to strike. It’s hard to get lucky watching TV at home—it’s easy to get lucky when you’re engaging and learning.
