Children make being both focused and foolish look easy. It is the state of play. Playfulness is core to innovation, and yet it is a remarkably elusive state of being for adults.

Foolish And Focused

Taking Risks And Being Focused, Sometimes, Are At Odds. Both Are Required To Build a Great Company

Do you feel we take enough risk at Bonobos?

I know a lot of companies that failed due to lack of focus. I can’t think of one that failed because they were too focused.

Does everything happen for a reason, or not?

Do we make the future, or do we receive it?

However much risk we are taking, we can and probably should take more.
