What’s the solution? Keep your head on a swivel. Stay sharp and frosty. Get a good night’s sleep, don’t send an email that you haven’t thought through, don’t speak out of anger, don’t get lazy about the details, keep a sharp eye on the money, set a good example for your team, be a lifelong learner, be an innovator but rely on what you know works.
There are a thousand mistakes you can make, and sometimes it feels like you are just trying to avoid them rather than creating success. But if ninety percent of success is just showing up, then ninety-five percent is showing up and not screwing up when you get there.
