“Thoughtless risks are destructive, of
course, but perhaps even more wasteful is thoughtless caution which prompts
inaction and promotes failure to seize opportunity.” — Gary Ryan Blair

Be cautious without becoming paralyzed by the potential downside
of action. Pursue your goals continuously but incrementally, testing/evaluating
progress toward the goal. This approach assures movement toward the goal
without exposing yourself to unnecessary and avoidable jeopardy. You shouldn’t
simply play it safe but should play it cautiously. You don’t proceed
haphazardly or impulsively, risking not giving yourself time and opportunity to
process, analyze, predict, evaluate, and modify actions and circumstances. By
exercising caution, you provide your intuition maximum opportunity.
