Is big when we are talking about doing something that has never been done before in the history of the world.
Market conditions have to be perfect, the technology has to be available, the culture has to be ready. That gap is often too big for any one person to cross. This chasm is bridged one plank at a time, built upon each other, never alone.
On the other hand, thanks to the internet the gap of doing something that you have never done before is shrinking.
But it takes guts, grit and patience. You have to pick yourself. You need to be willing to fail, to push through the dip. Sometimes it requires sacrifice like going back to school or quitting a job. It might mean saying no to things like social media or Netflix. Mostly, it is about finding the courage to take a leap.
The bigger the gap you close the bigger the change you make.
