The biggest risk of your life(2010-06-11 09:48:26)
世界上最大的Content Management Systems公司Interwoven公司的创始人Peng Ong的一个采访, 才明白人生最大的风险是什么.
SM: I am an entrepreneur’s daughter as well, and it is a risk taking propensity that I think kind of gets built in if you are from that type of a family.
PO: Let me try and pose this slightly differently because I think this helps some folks even if it doesn’t help everyone. I am actually not a really high risk taker. I will explain why. It is how you look at risk. Most of us, when we think about risk we thing of dollars and cents. Now flip the situation around and think about something else; in my case I invite people to think about the time they have. You can always make money here and there later. If you don’t make some now you can make some later. You get a little bit smarter and you can figure out different ways to make money.
Time just keeps marching on. Most of us that I know of have a limited supply of it. The biggest risk to me is not that I loose money but I do not make use of the time I have as effectively as I can. When you look at it from that perspective it is very risky to get a regular job, not learn anything and not to experience very much. From that perspective, losing all of my money is lower risk to losing all of my time.
