The Nature of Risk, The Future is the Risk, by Mamis.

The future is uncertain, therefore the future is the risk.

We must learn to deal with risk, it can not be eliminated.

Our lives are a circle, self-risk as a child, ego-risk as an adult, back to self-risk again in old age.

Risk is conventionally defined as a peril, but it is not - risk can be a positive.

We must confront and use risk in a positive way.

If there are ways to learn to evaluate what a risk is, and whether it is worth taking, and indeed whether a course of action is actually less risky than no action, turning the notion of risk into a positive, it may be that we can translate such knowledge into more effective behavior.

Risk, at its core, is about making a choice. There is risk associated with YES, and NO, and MAYBE.

Risk is inherently personal, how important is the risk to you?
