Top 10 Reasons We Take Chances

  1. We overestimate our ability.
  2. We are too familiar with the task.
  3. We don’t believe the consequences are that bad.
  4. We are in control.  Our voluntary actions feel safe.
  5. We have never seen the negative impact.
  6. We believe the “cost” is not that high.
  7. We believe the equipment will not fail.
  8. We have confidence in protection & rescue.
  9. We gain a perceived value in the activity.
  10. We see people we respect take the risk.

 

If you know when you are most likely to take chances, you can perform a Self-Check to avoid putting yourself at risk.
