This is the advice of an article in New York Magazine about how to try harder and better – by doing a premortem, a pre-action assessment of what could go wrong.
When you run through every chance of failure, you’ll see that there’s always another way to go. You can always deal with one more unexpected variable, or one more seemingly impassible obstacle.
If you keep going as you’ve always gone, you’ll get the same results. When you’re ready for new territory, take the time to prepare.
