Data-Discipline-Honesty #173

 I’m a man of God who asked the Devil for some face time.

It’s shade time.  You never see him coming cause you fake, blind

Takeaway #173:  It takes conviction and discipline to both acknowledge the truth of your competitive landscape and to confront crisis and opportunity.  Not discounting the data when they conflict with your convenient hypothesis is what separates the ad hoc worker from the strategic solution-maker.  Ignore big data at your peril.    Remaining wilfully blind to facts, it makes you neither compelling nor a player.  Intellectual honesty suits you best today.

To your spirit nothing weaker than the flesh
