CJ, your articles kick a**. Thanks for writing so much great stuff. I've been reposting the links in some startup accelerator Slack channels. One quick thing..."Luck is preparation meeting opportunity" is often misattributed to Oprah Winfrey. I imagine I'm just being pedantic, but it drives me crazy to see that attributed to her (not just here, either). Some say the quote is by Seneca but that's disputed too: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Seneca_the_Younger One thing we do know: it wasn't Oprah.

Ben you know what, you’re totally right. Two weeks after writing this I was reading “the obstacle is the way” by Ryan Holliday. He’s big into the stoics. And he has the exact quote from Seneca. Classic Oprah.

Thanks for spreading the word on mostly metrics. Means a lot. If there’s ever a topic you want me to cover give me a shout. That’s where the best ideas come from
