What to Do When You Someone Tells You to Play It Safe
Todd Brison

It’s interesting because the people who tell you to make those “safe” choices never consider the fact that doing something “safe” doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed to work out for you. I went to college and got a Master’s Degree to become a teacher, A TEACHER, of all things and I couldn’t get hired. How many times have you heard the phrase “if this doesn’t work out, I can always teach?” No, not always. Now I wonder what would have happened had I moved to LA or Nashville to play drums or try acting or something like that, instead of taking the “safe” route and now being up to my eyeballs in student loan debt. Take the shot to live your dreams. It’s probably less risky than doing the safe thing.
