Everyone faces risk. In fact, you face a plethora of risks day in and day out. You probably don’t even realize the risks you face.
There are risks that you can easily assess. Crossing the road, navigating your car, or going into work.
Tiny risks, yes. But risks none the less. And you take them on without a care.
Then there are higher consequence risks. The risks that makes you wonder. The risks you wonder how to properly assess them.
In his book, Take The Risk: Learning to Identify, Choose, and Live with Acceptable Risk, Ben Carson lays out the foundation for making wise choices when it comes to facing risk.
Carson uses a system called the BWA, or Best/Worst Assessment. The BWA is a system you can use to decide whether or not to take a risk.
