There is no correlation between craziness and success

Sometimes you see crazy people make it big and you infer that craziness is the secret to success.

Don’t be daft.

Not only is there no causation, there’s no correlation. Most crazy people fail.

They failed so badly that you’ve never heard of them.

The perception of craziness = success is an extreme version of survivor-bias.

Rather focus on building a solid business with sane decisions.

Don’t be crazy.
