Go check out the track record of the loudest believers in your industry. They’re wrong far more than they are right. In fact, when they love a new tech product or candidate, it might just be the jinx that guarantees failure.
The truth of the market is that the market you sell to isn’t filled with true believers. It’s filled with human beings who make compromises, who tell stories, who have competing objectives. And as a result, the truth of the market is that the products and services that win (if win means you can make a good living and make positive change) are rarely the products and services that are beloved without reservation by the true believers.
