What’s the guarantee?



I don’t have an answer for this. Yeah, I know it sucks.

Even if we put the best team together, planned the best plan, took care of the potential risks, learned from previous lessons, applied what we know, thoughtful in our implementation – there is still no guarantee that it will be a success.

We like to think it will increase the chances of our success. But somewhere in there, is some form of assumption. We all make assumptions as we won’t have perfect data, complete experience. Those assumptions, those extraneous variables and the unknown (because we only see what we know, and your plans are only as good as your assumptions), that makes it risky. It makes it fun.

So long as you know, you can check off all the boxes of criteria but that doesn’t make it a guarantee card.

What’s the fun?
