Just because you can see seven steps ahead, doesn’t mean others can

  • By Alan Knott-Craig

Your job as an entrepreneur is to try predict the future.

To be paranoid.

To anticipate the pitfalls ahead of your business.

The longer you work, the better you’ll get.

Eventually you can be like a chess grand-master, predicting moves 7 steps ahead.

By all means, do so. Use that skill every day.

Just don’t share the future with your staff.

Not everyone can see what you can see, so you’ll just cause arguments,

You might be wrong. Unlike chess, new rules and inputs appear every day in business.

Be paranoid about the future, have plan B and C and D, but you don’t need to share with your staff.
