Here’s one of my favorite things in the blogosphere. People create some new phrase (say, for example, the 4 Hour Workweek) and start to create a religion around it.

Successful people have mastered the art of picking and choosing. Very successful people have mastered the art of picking and choosing in a way that doesn’t make them look like assholes.
