Adventure without risk is Disneyland — Doug Coupland
I’ve been working on a big project for the past 2+ years and we’ve recently hit some bumps. Most of the bumps come down to risk. Risk is a funny thing. It makes people scared. It makes people worry. It raises issues of accountability, responsibility and a number of big decisions for those involved. But most interestingly, it seems to paralyze.
If you deal with risk, you need to find ways to overcome paralysis. If you can’t be brave, committed, make bold moves and be willing to try new things — even when the going gets tough — then you should look for other work. This is a risky world, but without risk it’s just Disneyland.
