This is a risk problem. It’s the most important reason to make a home renovation project, because it’s the most stressful and risky thing to do. So we have to make sure that we have a strategy to protect ourselves from this risk. The more we avoid giving ourselves the false hope that we can save ourselves and others, the more chances that we can save ourselves and the ones who are most likely to call us out as a threat.
The risk we face is not just financial. It is personal. Some risks, like those that we don’t think we can handle, are simply too big to get away with. If we don’t take the opportunity to be vulnerable, we are letting someone else be vulnerable.
The idea here is that, rather than being afraid of facing a risk, we should be able to confront the opportunity to be vulnerable. As a concept, it is a difficult one to apply to our life’s work, but I think it is a good one to apply. I feel like it is a risk that should be confronted, not minimized.
We should be able to deal with risk by taking our own risks. As I said in the beginning of this blog post, it is a little risky to take risks. We often don’t take chances. When we do, we need to be mindful of our own risk and try not to let it overwhelm us.
But I think it is a risk that should be faced. When we take our own risks, we need to understand that we are taking chances that could be fatal. When we are not careful enough, we could end up taking a risky risk and not really know why we are doing it, or what the consequences might be. This is our risk.
Yes, we all know that there is a chance that we could die. We all have that friend at the end of the world who just lost his wife and child. But that doesn’t mean we should stay home and watch that movie. The risk of taking that risk is that we could die.
Just as we all know that there are risks that we can take if we decide to take that chance, we also know that there are risks that we can take if we do nothing at all. So how do we decide when we are taking the risk that is either taking a risk or not? The answer to this is risk assessment. Risk assessment is a process that determines whether a risk is worth taking.
Risk assessment is really just a fancy way of saying “I’m going to take a risk and see if its worth it.” So what is an adequate risk assessment? We need to have an idea of who we are, what we want, and what we risk. Then we need to think about our strengths and weaknesses, and whether or not the risk will compensate for the risks we take.
One of the best ways to think about risk is that it’s all about opportunity cost. You do nothing to decrease the chance of an opportunity going bad, but in the process you increase the chance of something bad happening to you. In the same way, you can’t really determine a risk’s worth in one instant. What you can do is determine whether the risk is worth taking in time. To do that you need to figure out how long you have to wait before the risk becomes a risk.
Risk is an old topic that has been around for eons, and has been a problem for humanity for as long as there has been risk. Risk is a very subjective matter; what is risk today may not be risk tomorrow. That’s why when you are considering a risk, you have to consider things such as: the magnitude of the potential harm that could be caused, the probability of this event happening, and whether you have the wherewithal to mitigate the harm that may occur.
