I’ve realized something about myself somewhat recently. I am quite adept at risk management. In fact, I think I’m kind of an expert at it, really. Over the years, I’ve become highly skilled and well-trained in the art of eliminating doubt, confusion, and the unknown from my life.
Risk management is the ability to balance, plan for, and avoid any complications with a well-ordered life. In other words, risk management is avoiding uncertainty. It’s fighting against the forces that might try to tear one away from a neat and tidy, safe life.
Turns out, I’m also quite good at worrying to the point that I cross all the proverbial t’s and dot the necessary i’s so I don’t really have to worry at all. The problem with living this way, though, is it’s easy to replace true faith with my plans. I know I do this all the time.
