Entitlement, experience without work

Baking a cake that all my friends crave about does not transform me into an accomplished pâtissier. Sometimes it is beginners luck. The next one could be a flop. O, how tempted are we to project with only one data point.

Pushing your skills for 10,000 hours may get you there according to some. It appears to grit on your teeth and wade through the mud will help. That is if the rules of the game stay the same. 

Connecting the dots to early may be risky. But one thing is for sure; you need to stick around until you master the rules. If the rules are not clear, you may need a good dose of luck to succeed. But that’s a different game.

Bottom line: Living through all the seasons bring experience, everything else before that is entitlement.
