On this book:

“Experience can make you more aware. If you don't know what you can do wrong, you are more fearless in your decisions.”

Bastian Nominacher , Celonis SE

“I learned that if you look at it realistically and ask what could happen, it's usually bad. It's more the fear itself that's on your mind, and that makes you not do things.”

Delia Fischer , Westwing
