    That first WSJ article made me feel a lot better about my life choices

      that article is bizarre. It really seems to me that he's just talking about himself, and encouraging others to be like him. he praises fraternities and the school newspaper? According to his wikipedia page, he himself was in a frat, and worked for a number of newspapers after college - during college too, I bet. The rest are mostly either personal anecdotes about his success (#2, #4, the introduction) that aren't obviously generalizable, or platitudes of precisely the sort one is likely to hear in a graduation speech (#3, #8, #9 - cf Steve Jobs, #10). #7 just sounds like he's bitter, and #6 is a quirk that I'll admit is interesting advice, if not very profound.

    Greatness a matter of luck? Do nothing will increase one's odds?

    Doesn't seem to be working for the once great WSJ.
