Don’t make promises about the future

“We will be the biggest company in the world!”

“We will invent a time machine!”

“We will reinvent the Internet!”

Don’t let this be you.

Every time you make a prediction about the future you open yourself up to attack.

You’re either arrogant, or you’re wrong.

Why do it?

Resist the temptation to make grandiose promises about the future.

Stick to talking what you’ve already done, not what you’re going to do.
