Getting good


There might be short cuts.

There may be ways to get what you want without putting in the hard yards and building a team and dealing with issues and working things out and taking missteps and making bad choices and finding your way and pushing on though.

There might be lucky breaks you can catch, have things fall into your lap, land on your feet.

But trusting to short cuts and luck isn’t a reliable a strategy. You may as well cross your fingers, spit, turn around three times and chant a mantra to the all powerful Oz.

Assuming some smarts and a decent idea to start with, the yellow brick road is built on sheer hard work and practice.

On the way, you’ll learn how to make things happen, get good at finding answers, and get better at what you do.

Skippy strategy: Sheer hard work and practice.
