Taking risks

    I just put about 50% of my business on the line and it paid off!

    Every significant success in my life involved significant risk. The lesson that I have learned over and over is this: Don't be afraid to get your head cut off; you'll grow a new one.

    Just celebrating and thinking in text [like thinking out-loud]. :biggrin:

    Time to pick out a new computer. :tongue2:

    "Don't be afraid to get your head cut off;" you can always steal/borrow some one else' head!

    hmmm... I guess the main risk is here: whether this new head works well or not!

    Well its your job to make sure you stole a working head.

    What an idiot would be a burglar that steals a broken TV.

    That's right! But I think if the owner has a working head, s/he never let me steal his/her head! :tongue:

    It's a good thing he didn't realize that before taking the risk. :biggrin:

    Thanks.

    This one was pretty scary. It could have killed the business.
