258: Don’t leave it to Chance ​

“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.
