First you commit


It’s a compelling thought: that you can look at all the angles, do the research, consider things thoroughly and then, only then, make a clear decision based on absolute knowledge.

That you can find out before you commit.


The only way to have absolute knowledge is to go all in and do the actual thing that you’re trying to decide about. Only then, for better for worse, will you know.

You’ll find out a lot more along the way. Deeper understanding, joy and heartbreak, domain expertise. You know … stuff.

So when you’ve been duly diligent, and you’re left with the final decision, and you know what you want to do, but you’re not sure …

First you commit, and then you find out.

And then, dig in to make it the right decision.

Skippy strategy: There’s only one way to find out for sure. Commit.
