Hey Toula  Very nice quote. The trick is to know the difference i guess. But sound advice for sure

You just have to love Patton. Not only was he a great general, he was full of witticisms just like the one you quoted.

Toula.. Yes, one must take calculated risks.. but it is also good to take a leap of faith sometimes too.  Just to mix it up a little.

Ahhh, the age old question; how much risk to take for the potential reward.  Good post Toula.

Toula, this is so true, I agree with Valerie, it is a little of both..Calculated and Destiny and Faith.  Those who do what they love in life...I feel are the risk takers because you never know if it will truly work out..but if you believe and have faith I feel your energy can allow for wonderful things to come forth :)~ Laura Cerrano

Toula - The operative word is "calculated."  If risk can be assessed and minimized through careful planning, then risk becomes a strategy!
