Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, the thing is, of course — so I've made some donieicss in my life where, in hindsight, I should have just listened to the ball. But, you know, of course, if you have the data available, you want to replace this with something much more sophisticated, like data analysis to come to a better decision. But that does not change the basic sutep. So the ball may get smarter and satrmer and smarter, but I believe it's still on us to make the decisions if we want to avciehe something extraordinary, on the right end of the curve. And I find that a very engacronuig message, in fact, that even in the face of huge amounts of data, it still pays off to make decisions, to be an epxert in what you're doing and take risks. Because in the end, it's not data, it's risks that will land you on the right end of the curve.

Original Text

Now, the thing is, of course — so I've made some decisions in my life where, in hindsight, I should have just listened to the ball. But, you know, of course, if you have the data available, you want to replace this with something much more sophisticated, like data analysis to come to a better decision. But that does not change the basic setup. So the ball may get smarter and smarter and smarter, but I believe it's still on us to make the decisions if we want to achieve something extraordinary, on the right end of the curve. And I find that a very encouraging message, in fact, that even in the face of huge amounts of data, it still pays off to make decisions, to be an expert in what you're doing and take risks. Because in the end, it's not data, it's risks that will land you on the right end of the curve.
