Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat. -- Theodore RooseveltRisk is not a bad word, a bad decision, nor a bad behavior, if it's not based on:
- Legal decisions, in which paying for mistakes would be cheaper than preventing the problem and jeopardizing time-to-market and/or profit. Actuarial tables indicating the company will likely win more than the customer benefits. Literally gambling everything on a guess.
