Probability & Proximity

There are no guarantees that you will win or succeed.  Even the 1992 US Olympic Basketball Dream Team inherited a statistical chance of failure.  You can do a lot of things that give you a higher probability that you will surpass your goal.  Matt Jordan makes the case for increasing the probability of winning medals at the Olympics based on his work as a sports scientist with the Canadian Olympic Team.  Malcolm Gladwell’s, David and Goliath offers a compelling case for shaping the odds in one’s favor.

What can you do to increase the odds of success?  How approximate are you to those who can mentor and inspire your development?  Which journey is worthy of your dedicated focus?
