Sometimes bad things happen.
A forest fire claims a town; a building collapses; a storm knocks out power to thousands of homes.
The bubble bursts; the plant closes; the investment loses value.
A driver is distracted; the tests comes back positive;a child dies.
Sometimes bad things happen but they don’t always have to.
The Oxford dictionary provides several definitions of risk including the following:
That possibility is always there. If you have children there’s the possibility of their being injured in an accident. If you own property there’s the possibility of it being stolen, damaged or destroyed. If you have investment savings there’s always the possibility of a drop in value.
What if all it took to avoid an accident was a conversation with your child? What if a little planning could minimize the impact of an event on the life of you and your family?
Would you do it? Would you want to know?
