The fast lane has the type of mentality and thinking that can drive great success in your career. As life leads to a few simple rules to follow. One of mine is remembering your ABC's not always be closing but always be calm, cool, and collected. So following the 3 C's MJ Demarco has the 3A's which are Act, Assess, and Adjust. In business you are always acting, looking at the results, and revamping. If you don't you can't innovate and grow.
"It's like rowing a boat in a river: The market is the river. Your actions are the rowing. Sure, you can fight the current, but the market currents will always give you clues on the best routes. Bottomline, GET INTO THE RIVER and see where it might take you."
Now this is not to be confused with a market research paper that says by 2024 there will be 5 million people desiring this service. If Ford Motors did that in the 1900's they would've said more horse power and not from an automobile.
"If I asked what my customer's wanted, they would have said faster horses" -- Henry Ford.
Ozan Varol also has some great talking points
If you look at SpaceX and NASA Rocket scientists they take a very balanced Goldilocks approach to a failed rocket launch or mission that doesn't pan out. Instead of being discouraged they rub it off for the greater cause. So don't celebrate a failed experiment but don't let it block you from progressing.
So instead the saying is a spin off of facebook's move fast and break things or from Ozan "Lear Fast don't fail fast"
Approaching failure through curiosity, trial, and error. Breakthroughs are evolutionary yet not revolutionary. If you learn from all the updates, changes, and iterations while getting better with the updates you'll function like a growing app where each update or software improvement makes things better and patches old bugs. Look at what Apple has accomplished with capabilities on the iphone from 2008 to now.
Apple has not become complacment with their success either and continues to improve privacy, safety, and technological improvements that improve your user experience. You can still take the wrong approach or do things wrong and still succeed. You can also do everything right and fail especially when not everything is in your control.
After a success or failure ask these questions. What is it that you did correct and why did it work out this time? What went wrong and what are your most important lessons from the results.
I'm big on principles and the continous micro improvements in life, business, and social settings.
