“Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing until it gets there.”
– Josh Billings
What are you going to be when you grow up? It’s a cute question to ask a 5 year old. Sadly with the endless array of choices, it’s easy to get trapped into asking this throughout your entire life. There are all these different pulls and pushes that tempt us to stray from our path. But being a jack-of-all-trades can be detrimental to your success; it’s about choosing one thing and getting really good at it!
But how do you know what is worth sticking to?
Ultimately you don’t. It’s a decision you make.
Many of the worlds greatest achievements and success stories resulted from stepping into something radical but then many failures are too. Business plans and market research will give you some clues and it’s worth spending a few (many???) months doing these before you decide. But there are no guarantees and ultimately it’s just your choice to commit.
Once you commit there is nothing else but to persist, till success or bankruptcy do you find.
