Hindsight is 10% to 20%

June 8, 2015
   Back from Pasadena. Got a TV taping tonight at Channel 8 for Horizon. Three historians—two Marshalls and me, BBB. I've been grappling with a statement I read recently from a venture capitalist tycoon who admitted that, when all is said and done, "90% of what I do is a waste of time." The trick, he went on to say, is figuring out what isn't a waste of time. What is that 10% that we SHOULD be doing?

Daily Whip Out: "Old Vaquero Contemplates The 10%"

"May you have the hindsight to know where you've been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you have gone too far."
—Old Vaquero Saying
