Forbes Video: Do You Take Enough Risks? Probably Not

By SIMON CONSTABLE

Should you play in the traffic? Probably not. That’s not risky, it’s stupid. Likewise, going mountaineering without being physically fit, or without the right equipment/training is idiotic.
But not all risks are created equal. Some are worth taking. In fact, if you aren’t taking some risks then you aren’t likely to realize your true potential. While that may be obvious to many people on an intellectual level, fewer and fewer people seem willing to take risks.
Jon Levy, author of ‘The 2 AM Principal‘ explains his thoughts on what constitutes good risks to take and what are bad risks. He discusses the matter in this video.
