It takes time

So many people are in a hurry to be ultra successful but they forget that it frequently takes time.

If a college basketball coach had the following records his first 3 seasons he would probably be fired

17-13
10-17
11-17

Luckily Duke decided to give Mike Krzyzewki some more time and now he is one of the most successful coaches of all time.

If a football coach gets fired from a job with one team after 5 seasons with the following record, he might not get a second chance

6-10
7-9
7-9
11-5
5-11

Luckily the New England Patriots decided to give Bill Belichick a chance and the rest is history.

When looking at investments they always put in the disclaimer that “past performance does not guarantee future success” (or something similar). This is true with hires as well. Look past records and look for the traits you think will enable success in the future

Have a great day!
