3 Secrets to Making Great Decisions
To accurately assess the risk, we must know when enough is enough. A 27-year-old man I know, worth $3.5 million, recently ran across a business deal that promised to convert his present net worth into $25 million. He asked my advice.
"What can $25 million do for your family," I said, "that $3.5 million can't? It's too risky. You'll be jeopardizing your wife and children's security."
He gambled and lost. Fighting bankruptcy, he and his wife are laden with debt during the years they should be enjoying their small children.
Money isn't the only thing we need to say "enough" to. What about prestige, ministry, power?
