"When someone asks, "Do you have any case studies and rules of thumb from my industry about how someone in precisely the same circumstances did x and got y," it's pretty clear that they seek reassurance and a promise of certainty.
But all the good stuff comes from leaping. From doing the things that might not work."I think of so many instances where this applies... Of course, the one thing that sticks out to me here is that no one is in "precisely the same circumstance" as we are. All we can do is take all of the information available to us and make a well-informed decision. Isn't doing our due diligence enough? Why do we worry so much about failure instead of relishing what we will learn from taking a leap?
