There are several ways you can succeed.
For example, let’s say Hope has a success rate of 5%. Prayer might also have the same odds of 5%. Now multiple these two powerful forces together. Hope times Prayer = 25%?
Actually, no. It’s .25%
You might sense the sarcasm here. Though I literally have seen organizations multiply low-probability tactics and believe that overall success is more likely. As they say, hope & prayer are not a strategy.
