When examining the many factors that play a role in 'success,' the ability to move quickly deserves to be near the top of the list.
Instead of spending 3 months finding the perfect gym and nutrition routine, you hit the gym day 1.
Instead of thinking, analyzing, or planning for 5 years in the future, you plan briefly then fire.
Instead of wondering what people will think if you ship that product, book, or piece or art, you put it out into the world and move on to the next one.
Yes, luck, skill, effort, privilege, and timing all play important parts, but most succesful people however subjective are in the habit of moving quickly.
Moving fast does come with risk, and the road to 'success' is no doubt bumpy, but if there's one thing you can do to improve your chances of reaching the top, it's to commit to moving quickly.
