Business Lessons From The Periodic Table

When the Russian chemist Dimitry Mendeleev created the Periodic Table back in 1869, he knew it wasn’t complete.

He knew there were some elements missing, but he just didn’t know exactly what they were yet.

So rather than hold off on publishing what he had until it was complete, he put it out as it was and left some blank spaces in his table for others to fill in over time.

In business, especially at a time like right now, you should do the same.

Don’t wait until you have all the pieces.

Put out what you have now and then work hard on filling in the rest of the pieces as you go along.
