Here's blog quote # 554...
You can't steal second base and keep one foot on first."
-Unnamed 60 yr old junior executive-
Perhaps you've seen the quote by Mark Twain , "Go out on a limb for that's where the fruit is."
Or "A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are built for" by William Shedd.
Either you stay on first and play it safe, or you gamble a bit and try to steal second.
Like dipping your toe in a cool pond. Either you go for it, or you don't.
We say-- 'go for it.'. We are here on this planet for a short time, then dead for a long time. Why not? Calculate, then take a chance. Sometimes it's more fun.
And you may just be surprised-- at the positive outcomes that may follow?
That's my view.. what say you?
