Right Up Your Alley

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

Posted on Thursday, July 19, 2012 in Education, Emotional, How To, Intellectual, Values

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.
