“What Chance has made yours is not really yours” – Seneca
Does leaving things to Chance make you nervous?
Good; chance is a fickle mistress, and not to be trusted:
- Your competitor may have Chance on their side: And so they’re in the news more, or are more profitable, or have bigger offices. Good for them! But…
- She giveth and taketh away: The news may fade, the office may become a liability. The fickle nature of Chance’s gifts makes them unreliable.
- Lasting change doesn’t flirt with Chance: Systemize news. Systemize profits. Things that grow slowly in nature also live the longest.
Teams last when we don’t take venture capital from lady Chance.
