You need to make a distinction between denial about the situation and overconfidence in your abilities – Eric Barker
I talk about Grit as an essential element of being an entrepreneur. The question that often comes up for me is how does one teach, train, and coach Grit? The blog post below by Eric Barker offered me some helpful tips, one of which is the title of this post.
The quote focuses on a discerning balance between realism about the situation and hyper-confidence about one’s own abilities. I also believe in Barker’s tip about preparing; no world class organization, group, or individual becomes world class by winging it.
