67 Examples of Good Risk

A good risk is a risk that is calculated, managed and reasonable. This implies that you have considered what you are doing and are willing to face some degree of loss, difficulty or failure. Generally speaking, risk is an unavoidable aspect of life such that regularly taking good risks is ironically necessary for managing risk.
