Well, let's consider my fears...
- general risk
There are a few things I've avoided because of my fear of heights...
- walking on the skyway over the Grand Canyon
- hot air balloon flight
The kinds of choices that I've made because my general fear of risk have steered me toward my career - one where seniority used to protect you - toward a stable house. I'm not one to start a business because it's too much of a risk, not one to throw my money into risky stocks, not one to radically change what I'm doing in the classroom, but none of those are things that I really want to do.
So, the things I've missed out on are because of my fear of heights, and I really do want to go skydiving. The balloon thing would be nice and all, but not as cool, and the skywalk looks neat but seems like it would be disappointing.
In case you're late to the party, here's the deal...
