“I have always found that if I move with 75 percent or more of the facts,
that I usually never regret it. It’s the guys who wait to have everything
perfect that drive you crazy.”
— Lee Iacocca
A few years ago I wanted to participate with a high level networking group here in town. I didn’t’ know many people at that time so I worked out a way to meet the chairman of the membership committee. We connected and I became a member of the group.
The members were an eclectic group of successful business entrepreneurs and executives that have become friends and colleagues over the years.
Did I know that this was the perfect fit for me? No, I did not. Did I know if I’d like the chairperson? No, I did not. There were several unknowns but I was 75% or more sure it would work. I also knew that the risk was small and that I could live just fine if it didn’t work out.
If I waited for all the facts I might still be waiting. I knew this was the right caliber group for me to work with. I knew it felt right. So, I went for it.
It was also not the end of the world if it didn’t work out.
So, what are you waiting for?
