Many creatives find themselves on a roll at some point in their career, like Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings trilogy), but when it exactly happens is absolutely random.
Scientists are more likely to try new things with small teams before a hot streak and large teams when it begins. Your future work is to analyze how long your experimentation period should be.
Hot streaks are also known as 'career-defining periods of unusual success' and this has been observed in almost every domain such as Einstein's "Miracle Year" of groundbreaking discoveries to director Peter Jackson's box-office-smash Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Researchers analyzed the career-long performance of more than 20,000 scientists, 3,000 artists, and 6,000 filmmakers.
They found and confirmed the existence of a "hot streak" in one's mid-career - a multiyear where there are a series of successful outcomes within a finite period.
Between 80% to 91% of people analyzed were likely to have at least one hot streak, while a third had two hot streaks.
