I love a challenge and am something of a risk taker. But I try to play it safe, too. Does that make sense? In other words, if I’m going to jump out of an airplane, I’m going to make sure the skydive center is certified, has a solid safety history and my instructor is experienced. In the happy pic, you can see where I’m in the sky with Jack Hammer, who had 3,000 jumps to his credit.
I’m also one to look at our present economic crisis as a challenge as well. I don’t recommend risky endeavors like speculative investments or get rich quick techniques. However, I do think it’s appropriate to take other “risks” to get out of debt–like downsizing a house, or going from a two car family to a one car family for a season. Even shopping at consignment stores or growing your own veggies can be an adventure to some.
