No one told Julius Caesar to beware the Ides of April.

The mental gymnastics of time and luck and nefarious intentions are nonscientific.

So is LinkedIn, an art and not a science. No one can replicate the same end result twice under the same LinkedIn conditions. There’s a feisty and unpredictable algorithm to contend with. There are new variables each minute you add a new connection or your connection(s) add new connection(s).

So rather than try to fight it, adopt it and make it a success, yes that’s a long game goal, as so many others would like to, and you can too. Short gains will extend their shadows to longer term wins. You’ll see.

Now you don’t have to watch your back like Julius had to. You just keep launching ahead.
