"Don't play for safety -

 it's the most dangerous thing in the world."

Novelist, Hugh Walpole

Your action for today

is to start a conversation

about something you've

been holding back about

because it just might be...

"too risky."

Yikes. I like safety especially when it comes to CROCS! Now when it comes to talking to someone, I am ok with that....Jeff 😎

Hmm, your challenge today sounds a little too risky for me, haha.  I am willing to talk about just about anything but when I know that there might be unfair repercussions that come from some conversations taking the risk is not worth it, haha.

Good morning Thomas. Sometimes playing it safe is the most dangerous path. Enjoy your day.

Hello Thomas - I remember hearing this quote (or something similar) in the past.  As usual, it's thought-worthy.   While reading it, I was also thinking of the benefits of "safety".  Time and place join that process.  And then there is the comment from Brian England who includes a HaHa to provide another perspective too.

Interesting mission - and not impossible. I'm going to ponder this a bit to see if I need to initiate any uncomfortable conversations.

Hi Thomas= I would suppose that it's wise to weigh the benefits vs the risks. Standing so near that gator or croc would be a risk that I would not take. But there are conversations we need to have but have been avoiding because we are concerned about the outcome.
