Making progress means recognizing situations worth risk taking and recognizing those where risk is unnecessary. That way we preserve and accumulate resources necessary for cushioning future risks.
The best practice is to value own assets and when you have a clear shot engage with full power.
Taking a risk just for making a trip outside comfort zone is vasting energy and stupid way to make a cluster setback.
Sun Tzu said, “Be like water, avoid mountains, follow valleys”
So be smart. The goal is not to take risk, but to achieve goals without risk.
Taking risk may get you in a loop of short term decisions to repair damage and unable to recover in order to start making long term decision.
Be smart, not trigger happy.
