Beach Walk 653 – Risk: Math v Emotion

Recently a mom in NYC (writer Lenore Skenazy) allowed her nine-year-old son to take a subway ride by himself.

She approached this situation with a lot of consciousness and planning. She makes a great case for her actions and I agree with her. Risk can be managed so much more consciously than most of us do.

About Today’s Show

Yesterday we talked about sorting out preferences from pretend or imposed notions of good or bad. If you can just be drawn to something, without having to prove a case for it, well, that takes away a lot of pressure and frees things up.

Today is about looking at the option that calls from a distance, the one that is asking you to step out of your comfort zone. Instead of just rejecting it, or blindly following it, you can take a look at the worst case scenario should you choose it. That defines an outer boundary. If you are OK with that far end of things, then you can get the #2 out of the way and continue considering it as a viable option.

In my experience, identifying the worst case scenario really helps calm my mind and put the risk (or lack of) into perspective.

Don’t know about the #1 and the #2? please see show #102.
