Gladwell also said in Outliers that success is often largely a function of being in the right place at the right time or getting access to needed support and assistance. Bill Gates lived down the street from a hospital with an early computer and he used to sneak over there as a child in the middle of the night and use it. That’s part of how he got his 10k hours in early.

But I totally agree that nobody knows better than you what is right for you and that how you find out what is right for you is by trying different things.
