What is the worst that can happen?

“So what do we do? Anything. Something. So long as we just don’t sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we’ve satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.”

Lee Iacocca

What are all the things that could feasabily go wrong with a particular plan or decision? You could spend eternity trying to guess and reason through all the possible uncertainties and outcomes. Perhaps the better question is, “what is the worst possible outcome, what is the worst thing that could happen if we are wrong?”

Understand the risks, and if it they are bad enough, ensure your decision mitigates the risk by having a plan ready to address the possibility. One thing is for sure, you can never be prepared to addresses every uncertainty in life. Deal with the ones that matter and have a plan that allows agility to handle the ones that you can’t anticipate. EXECUTE!
