Success leads to more success. Right? Not necessarily.
Success invites the pile on. Either we do it to ourselves, or those around us do it to us. After all if we are winning, think how much more we could be winning just by adding to the list.
Problem is that what was successful will fail after the "pile on" and inevitably we fry ourselves or lose what made us successful by overreacting to the new found mess.
Continuous success = success + 1 more thing. Test the outcome. It worked. Try another. It didn't. Remove the one more thing. Repeat.
And if you do pile on, back track fast and don't "throw that baby out with the bath water". Keep and nurture what worked before you got stupid.
