“Persist – don’t take no for an answer. If you’re happy to sit at your desk and not take any risk, you’ll be sitting at your desk for the next 20 years.”

-David Rubenstein

It’s often been said, and excuse the cliche, that ‘insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result’. That quote came to mind as I read across Rubenstein’s words. That isn’t to say that sitting at your desk for 20 years is a bad thing, some people rather enjoy sitting at a desk with progression at a stand-still, and that is just fine. But it’s those that sit at the desk and don’t change anything that are missing out, it’s those that do the same thing over and over again, but expect different results. If you sit at your desk, and then take a bold risk, then you can expect a different result.
