“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”
Risk is not only worth taking, in today’s world it’s necessary to stand our among a crowed field of competitors. Last year I spoke at a conference and spoke about why we need to dream big and take aggressive risks. To get back to Mr. Buffet, you shouldn’t take blind risks, but rather make sure that you minimize the risks you take to the best of your abilities.
