Prefect's Thought for the Day

Risk

We experience hundreds of risks in our day-to-day lives.  Those risks could be things like driving to school, playing sport or setting up your own business.  As nothing is set in stone, with everything we do there is a certain level of uncertainty within each task. However, lots of these tasks result in stress, which can be a good or bad thing.

A fine example of someone who has taken risks throughout their career is Elon Musk: founder of SpaceX, Tesla Motors and PayPal.  

To use an analogy, Elon Musk jumped off the cliff and built his wings on the way down.  His only intention was to fly before he hit the bottom.  He  now owns multi-million pound businesses across America.  The point being, if he hadn't taken risks, he wouldn't have reached his goal.  He knew his goal, and found the way to reach it; which is why you need to find what you want to achieve.

To quote Elon Musk, "A well thought-out critique of whatever you’re doing, is as valuable as gold".
