In Business and in Life: Don't Just Try!

As someone who holds a business degree with a major in entrepreneurship, I absolutely loved this piece at and I count myself incredibly lucky that my entrepreneurship professors, especially the chair of the department (who writes an excellent blog), never filled our heads with the post-modern, relativistic, politically correct, absolutely and obviously false nonsense that all you have to do is try in order to succeed.

In fact, stacks and stacks of financial projections we labored over for our various business ideas showed us just how easy it is to fail and just how important it is to fail on paper so you don't fail in real life. Success is about deliberate action that creates the necessary results to achieve a clear goal. Just trying isn't enough. Reality doesn't know or respect your best intentions or most fervent wishes. You've got to think, and then you've got to sweat.
