5 “Nobody ever takes note of (my advice), because it’s not the answer they want to hear. What they want to hear is ‘Here’s how you get an agent, here’s how you write a script,’…but I always say, ‘Be so good they can’t ignore you.’” Steve Martin during a 2007 interview with Charlie Rose

8 Becoming a Craftsman The 10,000-Hour Rule The idea that excellence at performing a complex task requires a critical minimum level of practice surfaces again and again in studies of expertise.

14 Rule #3 – Importance of Control Control – Having a say in what you do or how you do it.Control Trap #1 – Control that is acquired without career capital is not sustainable.Control Trap #2 – When you acquire enough career capital to acquire meaningful control over your work life, you’ve become valuable enough for your employer that they will try to prevent you from making the change.
15 Rule #3 – Importance of Control The Law of Financial Viability When deciding whether to follow an appealing pursuit that will introduce more control into your work life, seek evidence of whether people are willing to pay for it. If you find this evidence, continue. If not, move on.
17 Rule #4 – Importance of Mission (Think Small, Act Big) The Meaningful Life – A unifying mission to your work life can be source of great satisfaction.Missions Require Capital – A mission chosen before you have relevant career capital is not likely to be sustainable.
18 Rule #4 – Importance of Mission (Think Small, Act Big) Missions require Little Bets – Great missions are transformed into great successes as a result of using small and achievable projects – little bets – to explore the possibilities.Missions Require Marketing – Great missions are transformed into great successes as a result of finding projects that satisfy the law of remarkability.
19 Rule #4 – Importance of Mission (Think Small, Act Big) Law of Remarkable The law says that for a mission-driven project to succeed, it should be “remarkable” in two different ways. First, it must compel people who encounter it to remark about it to others. Second, it must be launched in a venue that supports such remarking.
