Don't only evaluate the potential downside of action. It is equally important to measure the atrocious cost of inaction. If you don't pursue those things that excite you, where will you be in one year, five years, and ten years? How will you feel having allowed circumstance to impose itself upon you and having allowed ten more years of your finite life to pass doing what you know will not fulfill you? If you telescope out 10 years and know with 100% certainty that it is a path of disappointment and regret, and if we define risk as the "likelihood of an irreversible negative outcome," inaction is the greatest risk of all.Author: Tim Ferriss, Source: The Four Hour Work Week, p. 47

Itís all about what happens tomorrow. Because you canít look back and say, well, gosh, you know, I wish I hadnít have gotten fired, I wish I was there, I wish this, I wish that. It doesnít matter. And so letís go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday.
