    Risk Management

    I continually train myself. I find opportunities to learn new stuff as I am able, even when it's not directly applicable to my current job.
    In aid of this, I've been reading this:
    I'm going to quote a bit and paraphrase a bit and mixc it all up:
    Hazard is the seriousness of a risk from a technical perspective. Outrage is the seriousness of a risk in non-technical terms (in terms of how people respond to the risk).
    Experts view risk in terms of hazard. Unprepared people view it in terms of outrage. This latter doesn't produce a single positive result, and until you can get beyond that stage, you will be subject to greater (objective) harm when something unexpected or undesirable happens.
    Get over your outrage at the unfairness of the universe. It doesn't pay to anthropomorphize and rail against injustice (including conspiracy theories). But fortune does favour the prepared mind. Taking responsibility for your own reaction to external events, especially before they happen, makes you stronger.
