On the road to success, many things are variable and uncertain. Ideas change, markets shift, and passions burn out. These are just a few obstacles that loom in light of starting a new venture.

One thing is undeniable. No matter what, this “thing” will appear in your process. It doesn’t give a warning, doesn’t come with instructions, and doesn’t care what you’ve done so far.
