USING RULES TO MANAGE RISK
One of the themes we discussed in our last episode was that just because something is technically legal, or not against the rules, that doesn’t necessarily make it a good idea. We build on that theme today and talk about how we use rules and guidelines to manage risk and shape our decisions. We talk about the risks associated with car chases, the 21 foot rule, and how some parents worry more about having a gun in the house than a pool in their backyard.
We also share one of our guiding principles from Col. John Boyd about training and risk management: People, Ideas, and THEN Hardware, in that order!
