I came across an interesting link today. From here, you can download a PDF that has one quote and question for a day. Sometimes I’ll get my quotes from this nifty packet. Here’s the one for March 8:

“Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.”  -George S. Patton

Question: When do you decide the cost is worth the risk?

Before writing an answer to this question, I had to really think about it… And I finally came to the conclusion that you must decide when the cost is worth the risk by asking yourself, how often does this risk come along. If there is a chance that you could take the same risk another time, maybe when you’re more prepared so it wouldn’t have to be a risk, you should wait. Until you are totally ready to face it. But if the risk is a totally once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that may never, ever be given to you again, then you should definitely take it, without any hesitation or regrets, no matter what the costs are.

My little blurb on the quote/question of the day! What do you think?
