Cultivate your curiosity. Keep it sharp and always working. Consider curiosity your life preserver, your willingness to try something new.
Second, enlarge your enthusiasm to include the pursuit to excellence, following every task through to completion.
Third, make the law of averages work for you. By budgeting your time more carefully than most people you can make more time available. Does the combination of curiosity, enthusiasm, and the law of averages guarantee success? Indeed it does not!
Success in the final analysis always involves luck or the element of chance. Louis Pasteur grasped this well when he said that chance favors the prepared mind.
