When I was a teen I had a conversation with my dad about my future career choices.
Since I was a little boy I was known as “Scotty the Scientist”, so clearly a career in the sciences made sense for me. So it was a surprise to my dad when I mentioned that I thought about becoming a police officer.
That dream was more based on my fantasies about being a hero than understanding the what the job would entail.

I take risks.
I do, I take risks.
When you read that you might have thought:
– “What kind of risks?”
– “I take risks too.”
– “Risks? I like playing it safe.”
– “I love risk-takers.”
– “He’s in his forties, he shouldn’t be taking risks.”
– “I used to be a risk-taker, but I’ve gotten burned. Now I play it safer.”
And, if you know me personally you know that I don’t:
– Free-climbing a mountains
– Free-dive for octopus
– Sky dive
I don’t, but I could.
