On Creativity and business

“Creativity is the ability to produce work or ideas that combine or recombine elements of information that are stored in our brains or that are coming in from the outside world in novel and original ways, that have a purpose,” Carson said. “Creativity is really important today. If you’re going to survive and thrive in this rapid-change climate of the 21st century, you really have to hone your creative capacity.”

    STRESS-REDUCING TIPS: There are several easy, practical things people can do to reduce the amount of stress in their lives. (1) Be realistic and don’t try to be perfect, or expect others to be so. (2) Don’t over-schedule; cut out an activity or two when you start to feel overwhelmed. (3) Get a good night’s sleep. (4) Get regular exercise to manage stress — just not excessive or compulsive exercise — and follow a healthy diet. (5) Learn to relax by building time into your schedule for reading or a nice long bath.

    Risk literacy test:

    http://www.riskliteracy.org/

    Not sure how valid it is. It takes 3 minutes and its free.

    From the initial question though it seems a question of probability and math….rather than risk per se.

    I might suggest coffee, caffeine, a health energy drink, or a Smoothie King smoothie over alcohol, however.
