Comfort with uncertainty

Tim explains why comfort with uncertainty is the key 

I’m thinking that the single most important trait of the true entrepreneur is establishing a good healthy long-term relationship with uncertainty. As an entrepreneur, you don’t know for sure, but you act. You program, you contract, you create, you hire, you borrow, you spend, and you act, all like the explorer setting forth into unknown territory. 

Planning helps. Research helps. But you have to be able to live with the educated guess.
