boy scout vibes

It’s one thing to go sailing into dangerous waters, it is quite another to throw your team overboard in dinner jackets.

Exploring the dangerous, the unknown, the new, is a necessary part of innovation, but so is being prepared. I love the boy scout motto, ‘be prepared’. Preparing is the boring slog before the adventure, but absolutely crucial, just ask Robert Falcon Scott.

In chaotic uncertain times, planning is difficult and often impossible, but you can prepare, you can train for the worst and still expect the best.

Get skin in the game, be prepared.
