I just discovered that I had this quote, which expresses what I was
trying to express on eros-arch this week much better and in far fewer
When you go to achieve some new great thing, it is really helpful to
only try to achieve *one* amazing thing at a time. If you try to
do two or three, then the product of narrow probabilities bites you
in the ass, and your chances of success dwindle to insignificance.

The Internet stock bubble didn't burst on 1999-11-08. Hurrah!
The power didn't go out on 2000-01-01 either. :)
