If you can recognize the potential in something before anyone else, all you have to do it is tap in to that resource and the rewards will come your way. Being the first person to get access to a market, a material, a client or a concept will give you that much-needed head start. Then you’ll have the ability to maneuver outside the constraints of the bottom line.
At the same time you have to know whether or not what you’re looking at is really going to take off. Is this diamond in the rough just a pebble in the dirt? Be absolutely sure that what you’re trying to get is what you really need.
