Our lives are consumed with risks. Living in today’s world is a risky proposition. Factors within and beyond our control surround our very existence. We cannot engage in the practice of paralysis by analysis when action is required. We need risk management skills, applied to the major areas of our lives to enable us to be successful. There are books, programs and an entire discipline around risk management that contain information to use to our advantage when there are major threats.
Regarding risk taking, I was encouraged by a manager to take manageable risks in my actions and decision-making. Developing the skill of risk-taking, in conjunction with courage and good judgment will be useful to you today.
We are faced with taking risks every day. Life is a risk-taking activity, necessary to move forward, needed for our very survival. Risk taking is also important for our growth and development, therefore cultivate the practice and skill to make you a more effective leader. You want to be your very best in the risk-taking. Remember, BEST stands for, Be Excellent Start Today. Read the We Take a Risk poem and reflect on the messages, as you navigate your daily challenges.
