I often spend so much time thinking about risk and change in the context of helping people achieve their organisation's objectives that I forget to use the same disciplines to think about personal objectives - health, relationships, personal resiliency.
You may or may not be a person of faith, with a belief in something bigger and more powerful than ourselves (and you may or may not call that something God), but it's an interesting thing to me the extent to which we take responsibility for managing risk to our objectives (e.g. by changing how much chocolate we eat (substitute your own vice!), changing our exercise habits, buying critical illness insurance) and the extent to which we trust in that greater force (a loving God, fate, karma) to determine the outcome.
My friend and colleague David Hillson and I have a Christian faith. This is what he has to say on the subject If you've got 30 minutes I'd recommend a listen/watch of David's message. Just click on the button below.
