Best Time & Worst Time

Crazy If You Do, Crazy If You Don't
Crazy If You Do, Crazy If You Don't

There’s never been a better time to take risks.

In today’s economy, your very survival may push you to take risks you never dreamed of. Necessity is the mother of invention, right?

But.

There’s never been a worse time to take risks.

You mess up and guess what? You fall on someone’s radar. And the next time there’s a right-sizing initiative, guess who’s name is closer to the top?

How do you manage this paradox?

Small plans are okay. As Mother Teresa said, “If you can’t do great things, do small things with great love.”

So then are big plans better?

Think back through your career. Where did you have the most success?  The most reward? The most passion? The most determination?

Agree or disagree, it doesn’t matter.  What matters is getting the job.

What are your chances if you follow the old and outdated rules?
