Sometimes, we think people who have succeeded knew all along the whole thing would work out.

They had some crazy amount of confidence and insight from the get go.

They are super human in their ability to pick the right projects and then see them to completion.

That is a lie.

Nobody knows if something will work or not. They don’t. Ask Jim Parsons, he plays the wildly popular Sheldon on the show, “The Big Bang Theory.” When asked about the show by radio host Dan Patrick, he immediately said, “I had no idea that the show would be popular. Even after we filmed the first seven episodes I didn’t have a sense of whether people would like it.” Bazinga!

Don’t be discouraged if you can’t tell if what you are working on right now will work.

Nobody knows if it will. (But that should never stop you from trying anyway.)
