Life is a revolving door

Nowadays, my love life feels like a revolving door. As soon as a Possibly Maybe disappears, the next one appears. I thought that this phenomenon might just be happening to me. I was wrong.

Changing the ingredients may jeopardize success. Hence, the soccer quote by Sir Alf Ramsey (1920-1999). An 2011 article in Harvard Business Review came to similar conclusion: Why...
