  1. My Father always told me that success was 50% hard work and preparation and %50 luck and timing. In his book “Outliers”, Malcom Gladwell articulated these concepts in real world examples. This article now reasons that through hard work and preparation you can actually help make some of that “good luck” we all need to be successful.

    Very thought provoking!
