Risk-taking--how much is too much?

Interesting thoughts on personal and professional risk-taking atView from a Corner Office, based on a women's leadership meeting the author attended.

I particularly liked this bit:

    If there was one thread running among all three [of the panelists], I’d say it was the firm belief that passion and conviction are absolutely critical to accepting and managing risk. That, and the need to simultaneously plan yet also leave yourself open to unexpected opportunities.

That's a pretty tall order! Fortunately, the author also provides some more hands-on advice on both taking risks yourself, and handling risk that involves others.
