Risk-taking and goals
The most effective risk-taking in your career is tied to specific goals. You’re not doing something just for the sake of doing it, but rather to learn something, overcome a particular issue or advance to a milestone. If you want to start embracing more risks in order to improve your job status or your pay grade, it starts with clearly defining your career goals. If it means starting your own business, or going freelance after being a fulltime corporate worker, it’s important to keep in mind that your ultimate goal is independence.
