YouTube recommended this video dozens of times and I finally watched it:

He provides a great deal of interesting information, but towards the end he summarizes it as:

1. Be curious
2. Work hard
3. Be lucky

So far I am 0/3, but I still have hope! [scratches lottery ticket]

Actually, the lottery might be less of a waste of time than Publisher's Clearinghouse, but at least when I lose I do not lose money.

I supposedly have nineteen clients, but I have only seen one this week. Am I not working hard enough or is my luck lacking?

Yesterday I wondered how much soil and sand was washed into the oceans each year and how that accepted the sea level. A while ago I wondered if I could move grass from Mom's garden to the bald spots in the lawn. I bought a bulb planter and I have transplanted a couple dozen grass plants and all but two have survived, which sounds great, but four or five blades of grass isn't much more than none.

I apologize, I do not know where I was going with this, while I was writing a friend started giving me unwanted advice, and refused to stop.
