“When doing your risk analysis, how do you measure the risk of doing nothing?”
There will always be a reason to wait. Always a reason to push to tomorrow. To await that “right moment”. This is a pitfall we’ve all found ourselves in… we wait for perfect.
Every single one of us has experienced this… we held off on something, and maybe never started, ultimately because we genuinely believed we were going to fail. Or at least, not get it right, to the extent we wanted.
A lens to view these decisions through, is to put us 10 years from now. What is is the bigger risk – to look back and realize that the attempt didn’t come exactly the way we had envisioned, or… to look back and realize that we never tried?
Sometimes the biggest risk is never taking one. Sometimes we just need to jump, and build our wings on the way down.
