Sometimes the odds don’t work out the way you think they will. My gym socks are labeled for the right foot and the left foot. And while you would expect to pick up some of each when the laundry is finished, many times I pull four lefts before I find a right or vice versa. What are the odds?
The odds require a large number of instances to work. But in business, there may not be a large number of instances. There may be just a few. So, the odds don’t necessarily apply. That’s why you can’t rely on luck or the economy. You need to be good at what you do to achieve your goals this year.
