Day 15: Manage The Risk

Too often, we stop at the question: “What could go wrong?” and fail to ask the third vital question in breaking the bond between risk and fear.

Listen to the audio, then do the journaling activity below.

Too often, we stop at the question: “What could go wrong?” and fail to ask the third vital question in breaking the bond between risk and fear. That question is:

How will I manage that risk?

Instead of asking that question, we get sidetracked with that other voice in our head that I talked about yesterday – the voice of fear.

Now For Your Journaling Prompt…

Today, you will write your very first personal risk register.

  1. Draw a line down the middle of a clean page in your journal.
  2. Look back at the list of risks you wrote yesterday.  Which is the scariest or most intimidating?
  3. In the left column, write one bullet point to summarise the scariest risk.
  4. In the right column, bullet point all the ideas you can come up with for managing that risk.

Not sure how to manage that risk? Here’s the fun bit for today – research it. Ask someone who has done it before. Read blogs. Search Youtube. 

Keep going with listing bullet points in the right-hand column on how to manage the risk until you can look at the list and your gut tells you, “Yep, that would manage it!”

Repeat the process for your next scariest risk.

Keep going for as long as you like on this activity, especially if you’re enjoying it.
