Realizing perfection is a scarce thing. You’ll never create the perfect business (although you should try), and you’ll never be in the perfect market or location, but you can find the perfect time to start.
Talent, experience, and connections are important, but it will take much longer to reach a high level of success if you’re not continually taking action on new ideas or opportunities to grow your business.
Take enough shots, and you’ll grow more skilled, experienced, and connected over time. Are we talking about luck? No, we’re talking about putting the power of numbers on your side. The more shots (I.E. ideas, opportunities, interactions) you take, the more significant percentage of your efforts will succeed. You, of course, need to take calculated risks, but at the end of the day, it’s the concept of probability that will take you where you want to go.
