You are probably not taking enough risk
“How do you know when you are taking enough risk?
If nobody is complaining about your work, you are probably not taking enough risk.
If nobody is slapping themselves upside the head, if nobody is saying ‘I knew that!’
If anybody can afford to ignore what you are doing, you are not being strange enough.”
– Brian Moriarty, “The Point Is” (1996)
