If you always knew when you’d hit a home run, you’d take fewer swings.
Alternatively, if you don’t know when you’ll hit a home run it’s worth getting up to bat as much as possible.
You see this philosophy played out on both sides, in positive and negative ways.
Think a sales persona that’s so broad you’re seeking to everyone.
Or, you try to predict your home runs by planing it out to a T and then it ends up being a miss.
Don’t get me wrong, preparation is important.
But mor often than not we humans are bad at defining our home runs.
90% of the time we show up, and take a swing.
Regardless of your tendency to over plan or under plan, in order to hit that 10% you have to show up.
