Jump and the net will appear.
Seven years ago there was much handwringing around leaving my job to start my own consultancy. That is until my friend told me this quote from John Burroughs. It is a compelling illustration about faith in yourself and that the world values you. It often resurfaces for me when I am mulling over a risky proposition. The best thing about this quote is when properly applied, if the net doesn’t appear… well it won’t hurt long!
