“My observation over a lifetime is that when it comes to a fight, the craziest person has a huge advantage because he’s not worried about his own losses.” – Scott Adams, “Our Moon Shot”
This blog connects Leadership and Management with Embracing Failure through the common thread of embracing risk. Scott Adams’ observation above says a lot about the power of embracing failure as well as explaining the surge of success for Donald Trump in the biggest leadership contest in the world.
The thing is, as they say in poker, going all-in constantly works every time…until it doesn’t. It will be interesting to watch when and if Trump “blows up” with all his craziness. But in the meantime, he is a powerful illustration of the “loose aggressive” play and the effect it can achieve when failure is not a worry.
