No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.
Isaac Newton

In entrepreneurship, as in science, you are not always going to have all the facts before you embark on your next venture (experiment). It is therefore critical to develop the skill of gathering what data you can, forming one or several hypotheses, then using your intuition and perseverance to discover “reality” and make your way toward your goals. As entrepreneurs and achievers, we all know this to be true, but it is nice to hear it from one of the great scientists of history as well. Intuition plays a significant role in all speculative endeavors.

    I think this is SO true you need to be willing to take risks and inevitably fail before you will discover what works. Along with hoping that your guess will eventually come true you will certainly need to have hard work and yes pay attention to your gut. If it is telling you do something there is a good reason for that, follow your intuition and watch your dreams become reality.

  • Well said. Thanks. Follow your intuition and watch your dreams become reality… 🙂
