Taking Risks” Is Not the Same As “Doing Hard Things
Why is it important to separate risk from hard things? Because if you’re like me, occasionally filled with a sense of frustration or discontent, you may not immediately recognize that risk and challenge are not always linked. If you want one and not the other, but you seek solace in the wrong one, you won’t be any better off. Or if you want both—risk and challenge—you need to make sure you find a hard goal that also involves the possibility of real loss. Oh, and I don’t necessarily think that the goal is to always pursue things that are both risky and hard. Personally, I think the goal is to clearly know what you want.
