Say after me … it’s no better to be safe than sorry (A-Ha)
Listening to the acoustic version of A-Ha’s “Take on me” I heard the line:
“Say after me … it’s no better to be safe than sorry”.
I’m a lawyer.
I have probably said “it’s better to be safe than sorry” or “on the safe side” a million times.
But when I heard that line in that song recently, it stopped me in my tracks.
It’s not really better to be safe than sorry in lots of scenarios of our lives and practice.
Growth requires risk.
If we only play it safe – we don’t experience new ideas, opportunities, challenges. We don’t innovate.
If we always have to cover all our bases – we miss out on serendipity.
Having to apologize for something not working out or failure is not the worst thing that could happen.
So, say after me…
It’s no better to be safe than sorry.
What risks will you pursue this year?
