Business 101: The Slippery Slope Fallacy

You shouldn’t try to start a business because you might fail.

That statement is one slippery slope.

Now although it’s important to take heed of conditional risks, it is, I believe, even MORE imperative to take them.

Consider the risk/return tradeoff.

Where do you WANT to be on that graph?

Sometimes, that leap  is important. That leap meaning overcoming the risk of failure, not necessarily failure itself.

Without trying, you cannot know if you would fail or succeed.

If you succeed, great. If not?

Failing is still important.

Without failure, there cannot be cause for improvement.

Without improvement, there is only one end: Stagnancy.

And what do we know about stagnancy?

It breeds mosquitoes.

So in essence, if you want to start a business and don’t, you’ll be responsible for a rise in Malaria.

Think twice.


Thinking of: Clearing off the stagnant water.
