A lot of entrepreneurs, myself included, often suffer from “blind optimism” when it comes to implementing ideas. Basically what this means is that we underestimate the real work load of a big task. This can happen for a number of reasons but it is usually triggered by the rush of excitement that a fresh, new idea tends to brew up.
In this video, I talk about times where blind optimism has hurt me, how I have learned to catch myself from getting sucked into the trap and how I am using this knowledge to my advantage today.
I would love your thoughts on this in the comments below? Do you overestimate or underestimate the amount of work required for projects?
