One of my co-workers recently got engaged.
She’s known the man
for five months,
she met him online,
and it is a long distance relationship.
Other co-workers are making noises
like it is a mistake,
and it won’t work.

Maybe it is,
and sure,
they could do things
to increase their odds of relationship survival
but…

The thing is…
we can’t predict whether or not
a relationship will work .
I fell in love with my other half
at first sight,
and we’ve been happily together over 18 years.
A buddy of mine married
a man she’d known
for over a decade,
and their relationship didn’t last three years.

That is how it is
with business startups also.
We do a lot of
prep work and research
and other things
to increase the odds of survival
but in the end,
we can’t predict
which companies will survive
and which will not.

So if you’re waiting for certainty,
you’re going to be waiting a very long time.
