Richard Branson, CEO Virgin Airlines Billionaire, says he learned early in his career to always say yes, even if he doesn’t know everything at the time they ask the question.
Branson said in this CNBC article interview, “If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!“
This philosophy to opportunity works when your persona has an affinity for three things:
- Doer! Your persona is grow to being a doer versus a talker.
- Learn Later! This translates to a willingness to learn as soon as you’ve said yes even when you don’t have the experience.
- Move Fast! Have a willingness and/or ability to respond and move fast. In this movement, there’s also a need for accuracy.
