It should be pretty clear that I'm not a risk taker. After all, I'm an accountant - kind of the definition of lame and "safe career choice." But sometimes you have to try to defy even the laws of nature. It's why I found Nick Wallenda's walk across the Grand Canyon foolhardy, yet oddly inspiring. He's crazy, yet I admire him for taking chances. It takes bravery - you don't have guarantees of the outcome and he literally walked without a safety net. I could not do that, but I need to start letting go of fear and taking chances - otherwise I feel like my life will be wasted. Time to try defying gravity!
