It was my iphone-me-time when I encountered masterclass commercial on youtube. This time, it was not Gordon Ramsay. She was actually a rather old and peculiar woman, offering online class on being a writer. And she took my attention greatly. She said, if I thought I was a writer, maybe I am. Interesting.

One video leads to another, I ended up listening to Malcolm Gladwell’s top ten rules for success. He is, of course, my favourite writer, need to be noted. While, I ended up on number 4, I managed to turn on my laptop and start writing this blogpost.

Malcolm Gladwell’s top ten rules for success. They include:

  1. Have the courage to pursue your idea.
  2. Try a new approach.
  3. Believe in meaningful work.

  5. Distinguish yourself from others.
  6. Practice.
  7. Explore.
  8. Be patient.
  9. Understand the rules of business.
  10. Outwork others.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken.

— C. S. Lewis
