My 89-year-old mother lives a 2-day drive away, and asked that I visit her. During COVID, the standard risk assessment had picked up another key variable.
As with most decisions, there are options, variables, and the probabilities of occurrence and severity of any specific risk coming to fruition. In business and in life, it is rare that “throw caution to the wind” is a valid path forward. But also in both, “do nothing” is rarely a valid path forward.
I decided to fly.
