Everyone's got one. The perfect recipe.
Take these steps. Add these ingredients. Wait until it's this temperature. Follow these instructions and you can't go wrong.
The problem is, even if you follow the perfect recipe, the person next to you will tell you their mother's recipe is even better. Ask enough people, and there is always a better way to do things.
Here's the secret—the sure-fire formula for success in business and in life: there isn't one secret! There are countless solutions, processes, ways to achieve and define success. As soon as you think you've found it, there is always someone to critique it.
Find what works for you. Fail a bunch along the way. Keep refining your process. Then have confidence that your recipe is the one.
