A Note From Jim

Taking Risks In Business = RewardsTaking Risks In Business = Rewards

Most people think in terms of “risk vs. reward.”

In business school, one of the first things they teach you is to run a “cost benefit analysis” – which is a fancy way of talking about risk vs. reward.

The thought process is simple: if I do something, do the potential risks outweigh the potential rewards?

For entrepreneurs it often translates into “Can I get rich before I go broke!”

I say that last part with a little tongue in cheek, but it actually hits close to the mark.

The bottom line with this school of thought is that life is a zero-sum game. There is only success OR failure. And when we talk about writing huge checks or spending large amounts of time on something, the risks of loss can be quite real and you should evaluate them diligently.

(Note to self: be careful about leaving a six-figure job to join an MLM. You might end up bankrupt and living in a trailer for 7 years.)

But I like to think of things a little bit differently.

I like to set things up so I can either win, or win big. Succeed or succeed wildly.

I like to set things up so I can lose. What do I mean?

When I’m going to try something new, I look at the minimum benefit of doing something.

What is the least best thing that can happen?

  • Will I learn something?
  • Will I discover something?
  • Will I prove / disprove an idea or hypothesis?
  • Will I reinforce knowledge I already have?

Yes, life and business carry risk. And yes, you should weigh the risk vs. the reward, especially when it involves cash and / or time.

But often there are unrecognized or hidden rewards that, if you open your eyes and look, can turn a potential “failure” or risky proposition into one of the most successful ventures of your life.

So next time you’re weighing risk vs. reward, make sure you’re looking at it from all angles.

The hidden rewards might just make the difference!

Speaking of rewards, one of the most rewarding things you can do is to write your own book. We all have a message to share and when you literally “write the book on it” it can change your life and business forever!
