Mark is successful because of a million small choices.

by Seth Godin

Mark Zuckerberg isn’t Mark Zuckerberg

“Mark Zuckerberg” has become a codeword for the truly gifted exception, the wunderkind freak of nature for whom traditional rules don’t apply.

Well, sure, Mark Zuckerberg can drop out of Harvard, but you’re not Mark Zuckerberg… Here’s the thing: Even Mark isn’t Mark Zuckerberg.

This notion that there’s a one in a billion alignment of DNA and experience that magically creates an exception is just total nonsense. Mark is successful because of a million small choices, not because he, and he alone, has some magical properties. Mostly, the best way to be the next Mark Zuckerberg is to make difficult choices.
