How many people decided on what they wanted and what they have to get it with and then got it in one unchanged step. Perhaps over a long time.
I don’t know a single person or entity who has done that. None of Microsoft, Facebook, Google, or Apple would fit that model. All of them evolved.

Moving towards smart is actually harder than avoiding stupid. You must be brilliant or know more to do that.
According to self-made billionaire, Charlie Munger, Warren Buffets partner and co-chair of Berkshire Hathaway.

I build strategy and fact-based estate and income plans. The plans identify alternate ways and alternate timing to achieve both spending and estate distribution goals. In the past I have been a planner with a large insurance, employee benefits, and investment agency, a partner in a large international public accounting firm, CEO of a software start-up, a partner in an energy management system importer, and briefly in the restaurant business.
