Trying to be safe

Eliminating, or trying to eliminate, all the possibilities of error is one way on ensuring success.

Or so we think.

But what if I told you that going with your gut and failing is more productive?

I have been the cautious type, trying not to screw things up most of the time.

Even in the most mundane of conversations, I tend to add disclaimers.

And that has upset others, and subsequently me, almost every time.

Every time that has happened, I had thought of something else but didn't go ahead with it because it was 'too risky'.

It so turns out that the 'risky' options were the best I could have done in those situations.

And where has ignoring my instincts and going with the 'safe' route left me?
