Spin the Wheel
Here’s another interesting idea from my archive of stories:
The chances that you’ll win something huge are slim but they are there. Just spin.
Most times, a leap of faith does not require more preparation, so holding back doesn’t make it more likely to work.
To increase our chances, we just need to spin as many times as it takes.
A leap of faith doesn’t work because the people that take them are prepared, it works because they leap. That’s the one single denominating factor.
Getting stuck (and too busy) in preparation is not a sign of hard work, it’s something else…
