Successfully managing the dissonance between unwavering commitment to your vision and the plan, and accurately reading the business signals that forewarn trouble is the entrepreneur’s perpetual challenge. False negatives and false positives are coming at you in a steady stream. Overreacting and underreacting each have great costs.
