It is obviously topical at present to make an analogy to the Olympics. So I can't miss the opportunity.
I guess the big question is to ask ourselves "were the Gold medal winners lucky?".
Like in business rarely is success down to luck alone. If you believe it is luck, then keep buying the Lottery ticket with hope and I wish you good luck.
But I would argue a clear focus and vision, affirmations, focused activity, the regular measurement and the desire to continually improve, are all key factors that can make us gold medal winners in our business lifes.
