So what is the key factor in success for so many of the goals we set?
I think the important thing to remember is that there can never be just one.
Intelligence can get most people pretty far.
And circumstances can make or break people, despite themselves.
Preparedness is even unappreciated.
But what about a quiet determination?
Maybe we don’t need something viral – maybe we just need to work patiently for ten years?
For however many years.
Time will tell.
We are often taught that successful strategy is a matter of boldness, but it has also always been the case that it’s as much a matter of patience and due diligence as it is of noticeable action.
