3 Lessons from traveling in Kunming

Confused. A touch of panic. Out of breath. I'm sitting on the bus in the outskirts of Kunming, China, and I do not have the slightest clue if I picked the right side of the road or not.  One will eventually take me to my destination and the other one will inevitably ruin the day-trip by placing me on the complete opposite side of the city.

As I sat there catching my breath, I pondered : how did this happen? I was so diligent in my research, I used the top resources, I had ample time to prep, and still, it came down to a 50/50 gamble. I realized this situation resembles a great deal of what we face in business and in life.
