Very quick read at aksblog called “Failure is The Most Likely Option“. Even though I am an engineer, and even though I am keeping track of US healthcare developments to help my study of Brazilian HC companies, what I wanted to highlight from the askblog post isn’t either one of these two points. What interests me as we approach the end of the year is to think about Edge Investimentos in light of the “start small and build incrementally” sentence. Yep, that’s pretty much what we’ve done so far: we’ve built up processes, the team and the culture, little by little, while we grew responsibly – albeit from a very small base. We are planning extensively to grow responsibly in 2014, even though we remain fully aware of the temptation to grow quickly – which could mean straying from our strategic objectives.
Once this process is ingrained in all of us, it’s a matter of not confusing prudence with the fear of failing – and keep grinding.
