Doing Nothing - by Ravi Patel

 

Taking risks involves possibility of failures. Decisions to act on something have consequences. Risk averse people eliminate any adverse ramifications by doing nothing.

 

Is doing nothing acceptable for Entrepreneurs? Entrepreneurs start businesses as they are risk takers. For them, passion in an idea overpowers any risk of failure. Doing something in good faith, however difficult, is better than not doing anything at all.

 

What happens when an Entrepreneur grows the business to a point where he or she feels comfortable. Does doing nothing any more become an option? Are decisions postponed or not made because that might upset the "being comfortable" zone?

 

True Entrepreneurs will always be leaders and risk takers and as they continue to be innovative. Entrepreneurs who become successful CEOs need to be cautious of "doing nothing" on significant issues.

 

Doing nothing is sometimes worse than doing something in good faith but failing. Do the Right Things!
