There’s an old joke/psych-study that goes like “85% of people believe that they are above-average”.

I’ve seen recent statistics that only 1 in 10 venture backed companies make money for their investors. And only 1 in 20 bands signed to music labels ultimately make money for the label.

So while I’m confident your ideas, your execution, and your capabilities are above average, it’s worth asking “how far above average am I”?
