I started a thread awhile back about asymmetric returns - basically the opposite of a DARE. I was wondering if there was a better thread on this, or if someone would start one, as mine was a bit of a stub.

The idea of this thread is very important, but it would be even better to see it contrasted with the opposite: positive probability activities, low risk, high reward potential :)

My number one example? Meeting new people. Very low risk, endless possibilities - and fun, too!

@MJ DeMarco Thanks for sharing this - really struck home for me for a couple of reasons:
  1. Been dealing with multiple health issues that have all hit at once. None of them are life-threatening, but they've impacted my lifestyle and mental health while I try to manage them/improve them. Some of these issues are things that aren't supposed to be happening based on my age, fitness level, etc. so I get into the "this is unfair" routine in my head at times. The driver who was killed did nothing wrong and ended up way worse than I, so a great reminder that I still have my life and should be grateful.
  2. I've been working on cutting down on my alcohol intake these last few months, as I had been using that for stress relief and have a lot of happy hours & dinners with work. Very easy to think that I'm not drunk so I'm good to drive, but I've been guilty of driving buzzed a few times in the last year. No longer after reading this. Not worth it and would hate myself for the rest of my life if something happened.
Glad they hit their fundraising goal, and I am very happy to see the positive impact this thread has already had on several people, including myself. Terrible thing to happen but if some good can come out of it, makes his life mean even more.
