The essence of success...

Quotes are something of a miniature past time for me ;) They come with this certain interesting load of history, wisdom, cynicism and/or irony. I get one quote a day to my email and the latest one says:

The essence of success is that it is never necessary to think of a new idea oneself. It is far better to wait until somebody else does it, and then to copy him in every detail, except his mistakes.

-- Aubrey Menen

Ha I like that. Though I guess in most senses as riders we are just copying the riders that come before.

My thought exactly :) I guess the key is to know which 'idea' to copy so you don't loose your time on repeating bad ideas...;)

I loved your jumping technique post - I miss show jumping (but don't enjoy it without a decent horse) :(

I think it's a great idea. But most people I know only learn from their own mistakes and rarely from the mistakes of others.
