Visualize the last time that you ran for a departing train. Do you remember the adrenalin rush? Maybe you tripped as you galloped up the stairs. Your hair flew in every direction. You dropped your newspaper and spilled your coffee.
And it didn’t matter.
You made the train.
Don’t you love taking the chances? When is the last time you took gamble?
As we grow older, we have more responsibilities and take more calculated risks.
I think it’s important to remember that there is a balance.
Entrepreneurs are risk-takers by nature. Filled with enthusiasm, they are passionate. They make multiple mistakes in order to create something significant and valuable.
That said, while taking chances is wonderful, we also have to be careful of perpetually rushing to make the train. It’s the curse of being impatient. Learn to be a bit more patient and focus on the nature of your actions.
So, the next time when you plan to rush toward the departing train, make sure it’s the right one.
If by chance you jumped on the wrong one, the correction is simple: get off at the next station and change your direction.
