Every very successful person can name the project that made the difference in his or her life -- the make-it-or-break-it deal. When you're getting into that kind of project, you've got to learn how to pay attention. I mean full, total focus. That's all you do. That's all you think about. That's your only goal.
Day and night, eat, sleep, and breathe your goal. If you aren't willing to give this venture all your attention, time, and energy, it probably won't happen.
Staying focused is hard enough in the best of circumstances. Throw in a collection of obstacles and the odd against success grow even higher. In the hope that forewarned is forearmed, take a look at a few of the obstacles you can expect to run into and be ready for them.
