Risk is good

As Gordon Gekko might say, Risk is good.

I tried to pen some gibberish about risk being good. Like greed is good. I got nowhere. All I kept thinking was “Duh!”

I think taking risk is good. But ultimately the only thing I had to say about it was “Take risks.” Well now, that’s fucking genius.

Maybe it’s more about why. That whole risk/reward dynamic. But that’s another “Duh!”

Maybe it’s that nothing changes if you don’t take risk. Maybe it’s the idea that failure is bad. All that clichéd crap.

I guess I just want to agitate people. I want you to do something different. Reach, breach, rebel.

Rebel in little ways, in big ways. Do it. It feels good. Just say no to bad shit, to mundane shit. Say yes to good shit, to the thrill of divergence.

What will happen if you rebel? I have no idea. Really, I don’t. That’s the whole point. Perhaps nothing.

But possibly the unexpected will happen. The new. The awesome. Do it!

Ah, now that felt good to say. Risk is good.
