Eliot on Crossing The Line

“No great deed is done by falterers who ask for certainty.”

–George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) (1819–1880)
English writer

Always seeking certainty before taking action can severely limit productivity. In some cases, the evaluation and search for certainty is more costly than a potential failure due to action.

Worst case scenario for a wrong move is generally nothing more than an education (1 of the 4 points to better resilience).

Consider getting in the game a bit earlier the next time an opportunity arises. Avoid the “paralysis of analysis” and risk the uncertainty.
