I view business transactions like a game of cricket...
leave the wides... they will just get you out and expose you to undue risk
hit the 4's - they are a ride to Easy Street
The 6's - Every now and again a six comes along - a deal tailormade for you, to smash it outta the park and make a home run (or a bank run)
Hit the 1s and 2s- they are your bread and butter and keep your business sustainable
keep in the crease - dont be caught by a soft dismissal - eg do your taxes properly
Try not to mistime the ball - that will just get you caught - strategise and plan
In other words pick the balls you are going to hit and leave the rest, they dont matter in the big scheme of things.
