Risk Reward Balance

Life is full of risks, including the risk of excessively avoiding risks.  To live requires risk.  Not to risk, therefore also means not to live.  But to risk too much, may also mean not to live, or at least to hurt, and perhaps to hurt really really bad.   And so goes the balance of risks and rewards.  To be or not to be really does seem to be the question.

Risk reward is extremely personal.  Assuming you are no longer a legal minor, no one can really tell you if the risk of falling outweighs the rewards of climbing.  If the risk of drowning outweigh the joys of paddling.

In this section, we will not presume to make decisions for you regarding risk and rewards.  Our goal is to provide you with information and skills which you can apply to your life decisions… perhaps to reduce your risks, recover from your accidents, or just give you insights into what the heck went wrong.
