Today I want to share a learned perspective from Scott Belsky (Investor, Author) on establishing a course for success. His premise is that you won’t find the course for success through endless analysis and mass adoption of a playbook that has already been played. “The dirty little secret is that every success was almost a failure. Timing and uncontrollable circumstances play more of a role than any of us care to admit.”
Focusing on what were the little things that made the biggest difference is the key to learning and applying what you have learned from looking back. These imperative difference makers are the ideas to be sought, known, and applied as lessons in setting and leading your leadership course.
“Learn from the past, but don’t be inspired by it. It is not about ideas, it’s about making ideas happen.” — Scott Belsky —
