Understand What You’re Up For, And Up Against

Understand What You’re Up For, And Up Against

Any battle, whether war or business is already lost when approached with complete ignorance and misunderstanding.

Should the armies from Winterfell and Dragonstone approach the army of the dead without knowing only fire or dragonglass can destroy the army of the dead, it was a lost battle right from the start.

Lesson - do your research, understand your market, know your customer. Use facts (data) and less assumptions in your approach to business or you may be wiped out quickly.

Everyone in Winterfell had an important part to play. From those gathering food prior to the war, to those making weapons from dragonglass, to actual war frontliners, it took everyone’s effort to win a successful war.

A lot of things will test you and try to break you in business. Many times, they are unforeseen.

There were many months leading to the war at Winterfell. The time wan’t just spent talking. A whole strategy was developed for the entire warfare - the armies, the order of approach, weapons, location, formation, feeding and so much more.

Danny and Jon led the armies at the war. Prior to this, they were already dealing with internal and sensitive issues and still had to focus on the mission - to win the war.

It would be unwise to assume you got it all covered. No! Business isn’t always predictable. Even some the biggest of reputable businesses have faced sudden business challenges, some of then wiped out of existence.

In the wake of your losses no matter how great, never also forget the importance of celebrating your wins too.
