I also find that quote inspiring, but I assumed he meant it as a suggestion to find creative ways to avoid the hiring process altogether. Personally I've been aiming to be, to use Cal Newports book title, "so good they can't ignore you". I got my current job that I do next to my full-time degree because I was interesting enough to the company that they wanted me more than the other way around. The interview was mostly a formality. It felt very much like pursuing a route nobody's taking.

how many times do I have to say "write a book" before you write a book?

My master thesis counselor mailed me three theses that were done in the last year and relevant to my topic. They were 70, 159 and 174 pages long. I think that'll be my practice run.
