I’ve written a few contrarian things lately.
Specifically, I ranted a bit about why I think the most common “make money online” technique doesn’t work for most people, and about how, really, the most important ingredients of success are persistence and grit.
Then, on my own blog, I ranted about why “systems” for achieving specific results don’t work.
I got a lot of comments, emails, and tweets agreeing — too many people are looking for a quick fix, and we need to remember the basics: hard work, and good old-fashioned stick-to-it-iveness.
But believe it or not, there’s actually a problem with taking that train of thought too far.
