When you’re a star, it’s easy to be a star writer
A star athlete is the best writer in the world, according to an award-winning author and the founder of the New York Times bestseller “The Big Short.”
In a new book, “The Art of Being a Star,” published Tuesday, author and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Michael Lewis said it’s not just about talent, but “a whole lot of hard work.”
Lewis wrote “The Rules of the Game” for “The New York Post” as well as for “Entertainment Weekly,” “The Los Angeles Times” and “Enterprise.”
The book includes tips on how to be the best athlete you can be, Lewis said.
You’ll learn how to make sure you don’t get bored.
You might even be asked to give a motivational speech.
You have to be an entertainer, he said.
If you are a star athlete, Lewis wrote, it will be hard to get bored because it will mean more time and energy devoted to your work.
You can work longer hours, get paid more money, and be more popular than your peers, Lewis explained.
And if you want to be successful in your career, Lewis says, you can take steps to make yourself “more likable.”
That includes being a good role model.
Lewis also wrote that it is important to be consistent.
You should always keep your personal life separate from your professional life.
It is critical to avoid conflicts with others, Lewis advised.
That includes a relationship with your spouse, if you can keep it separate, Lewis told the Times.
He also warned against being too involved with others or with business.
But Lewis is not a fan of the “War on Drugs.”
Lewis, who is married with two young children, said he would never be tempted to use drugs.
He was the first person to publicly say that he used marijuana when he was in his early 20s, Lewis recalled.
He said he was an addict at the time and said he still uses drugs.
He said he has had to learn to live without the drugs and said there is a difference between using and having a drug problem.
He added that he was never a regular user of drugs.
