Thursday's Thought: Risk and Instinct
Anita Sharpe on Business

'Too many corporate executives are like bankers, accountants and Puritans: they're always looking for a reason to say no. To avoid risk. To play it safe. This is the wrong approach. Business is risk -- constant, unavoidable risk. As a leader, you can't shy away from risk; you have to embrace it. You also have to learn to trust your instincts. Time and again, people have come to me with new ideas and what sound like crazy ventures. I listen; I try to stay open; I try to trust my instincts. Then I evaluate and decide whether or not to move forward. Sometimes I do this right on the spot, in a matter of seconds.' -- Robert Mondavi (from Harvests of Joy)

I would like to read the article 'Bosses on the hot seat' which began 0n page 29 and continued on page 33 0f the March 2005 issue. I read it in my Doctor's office today and I also entered a subscription today. I only tore out page 29 ( with permission) not realizing it continued on page 33.

Hi!
Thank you for the words of encouragement! I needed them. I'm trying to go into business, and it appears to be a slow process. However, I'm willing to 'risk' it. In fact, to me, it's rather like 'Adventureland.' God bless & Have a wonderfully scrumptious day!
