How far would you go to make a point? What are you willing to do to launch your idea? Would you go as far as Dane Miller…
From scratch he built Biomet to over $12 Billion and no one knows who he is much less the leaps he took to do it. He couldn’t get anyone to believe that titanium was safest for the body over stainless steel, so he implanted a piece of titanium in his arm just to prove a point. (He left it in for almost 10 years!)
Dane really embodies Rule #2: Launch is a leap and you must go all in.
“One of the problems with highly educated, technical people is that they get caught up in analysis and can’t make a decision. I’ve always been a believer that the last part of a good decision is based on intuition not fact.” – Dane Miller, How They Did It (p. 94)
To what extent are you willing to go all in to launch? Perhaps Dane Miller is a good measuring standard.
Launch like only you can, because no one else can do it like you!
