The “3X” Theorem :
Communicate!
Communicate!
Communicate!

Over-communicate!
Over-communicate!

Advice to my young very shy son, when he pressures me to ask the store clerk to ask for the Playstation he has been paining for, for the past 6 months. Failure to ask for what you so much desire guarantees the most feared result : rejection, failure. So, by asking, you increase your chances astronomically.

This same advice applies in business. By over-analyzing and justifying failure to attempt a new, rizky venture you are guaranteed of your biggest fear : failure. By launching an attempt, any attempt you drastically improve your chances. You might have to try a number of times, but not trying guarantees failure…
