Some people like to imagine themselves taking a huge risk and emerging triumphant against all odds. I prefer discovering non-obvious easy wins, where the odds are stacked in my favor, and the risk is not consequential.

Start conservative, not optimistic. If you think the odds of success are low, keep thinking until you find an almost sure bet. Eventually (when you can't stop winning), you can take a few speculative shots. But do this too soon, and it will destroy your motivation.
