We go into the toughest decision many struggle with during their life time, To Risk or Not to Risk. Its the eve to the surgery of the Bijanis sisters and it is touted as the top risk operation but we learn about the process of risk taking from what transpired this day.
- When making the decision to risk or not, priority should be given given to doing everything possible to reduce the risk factor. The medical team wasn’t ignorant of this fact.
- Plan ahead, who goes into risk taking without planning?
- Be clear about any operational details. That is answer questions regarding who, what, where, when and how in advance.
- It doesn’t stop at planning, review your plans. The team reviewed their plans not just once.
- Yes, pray. What ever your faith is built on, pray and seek that extra support.
- It may look or sound foolish but decide what you want to make of yourself. Dr Ben Carson had the feeling Dr Goh was acting foolish even against best advice, Carson’s colleague felt he was making the biggest mistake but the defining factor is, you deciding what you want to do with your life. Your courage and your determination.
- Once you are live with courage, it will bring you support and green pass on many occasion. Dr Ben stated that :
Struck yet again by their (Ladan and Laleh), I walked over to them, took their hands in mine, and promised we would do the very best we could to care for them.
In deciding whether to risk or not, Dr Ben Carson gives 4 questions to answer to help your decision process:
- What is the best thing that can happen if I do this?
- What is the worst thing that can happen if I do this?
- What is the best thing that can happen if I don’t do it?
- What is the worst thing that can happen if I don’t do it?
