I like the advice, Set the Specific Goal of Becoming a Bestseller.

Wow, that is really eye opening. Talk about gaming the system.

Is it gaming the system, or is it just having a plan and following through?

I think the latter, actually.

Not really gaming the system. There is nothing new here - Try 15 things and 3 work. Sounds like most other exploratory activities where cause and effect are not a given.

What surprised me is that Eric needed A/B testing to determine that words like entrepreneurship and innovation play well with his audience.
