Being Dangerous

Charles Bukowski said, "To do a dangerous thing with style, is what I call art."

Why are we so risk adverse? Why are we so afraid to fail? Maybe some of those same reasons cause us to do little that draws attention or stands out as compelling.

Are you willing to do a dangerous thing?

Western culture says that failure - any kind of failure - is bad. We play the blame game too much, so much that we are unwilling to experiment. That's why Toyota's system of continuous improvement is running circles around American automakers; if we could utilize the same thing in missions we would leap light years ahead.
