What McClusky found—hidden right there in plain sight—was that he could tell which individuals would finish the class, attain the degree, or succeed in their new project by assessing their margin of power. The key to avoiding false starts and failures was to carefully assess your available margin and to take on new efforts only after you intentionally increased your power factors to create the necessary surplus.
