Achieving anything in life nowadays is 5% talent, 5% hard work and 90% not being distracted by the Internet.

@fribbledom I really should be focusing on work right now, but that gets a boost.

@fribbledom In my work on Odysseus being distracted by the Internet is very much part of my workflow. I need to know my software works!

I just have to not get too distracted at all.

@fribbledom Knowing I have to close my browser to continue working on it does help!

Talent and hard work account only for about 10%? That's brilliant! It means I do stand a chance after all.

Because not being distracted by the Internet narrows the perspective so much that basically anything looks like a lot…
OTOH, yes, being distracted too much (by the Internet, or video-games, or television…) is rather a norm than exception.

@fribbledom Just trying to find citations and links in Wikipedia, but I'm lost

@fribbledom or it's 99.9% inheritance and 0.01% don't fuck it up.
