    You might not be saying exactly what you mean. Haven't there always been forms of technology? Haven't compentence and consistency always helped people become successful? And aren't there successful people who are not competent or consistent?

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
