I harp with people all the time to “just make a decision”. Taking calculated risks is fun, but they have to be calculated. In my brief 30 years my calculated risks surrounded attending a university where I knew no one, solo backpacking through Europe, and moving to the Pacific Northwest with only a room found on Craigslist and no job.
Some risks proved fruitful, some not. Though despite the outcome I wouldn’t change a thing because even through “failure” a ‘Plan B’ and sometimes ‘Plan C’ and ‘Plan D’ were in place prior to action.
With all that said I’m about to kick my own rear into gear, calculating a next step if I aim to meet one of my 2011 personal goals. One of my goals this year, no matter if it flies or flops, is to launch a mobile app compatible with iOS and Android.
One could easily argue that going it alone is quite silly. Therefore, if you’ve got the idea, then I’ve got the resources. We can even draw up an agreement to prevent one another from going all “Winklevi” on each other.
