an open mind

Over time we become more and more set in our ways.

We know what we like. Or at least we think we do. We know where we’re comfortable. But that’s a dangerous place to be. It’s a place of stasis and stagnation.

The easy decision is the one we’ve made many times before.

We’ve got a good idea what the outcome will be. We can make a fairly good prediction of what will happen next.

But what about if we try something new? Then we don’t have any previous information to go off.

Risk exists on a spectrum.

There are some things where we can afford to simply jump straight in. And some that require a little more preparation.

When we do need to prepare, we have to be willing to accept an imperfect situation.

We have to get far enough, and then take that leap.
