Strategies, continued: Risk-Return Trade-off

“Study strategy over the years and achieve the spirit of the warrior. Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men.” – Musashi Miyamoto. [recent FB status msg of Gary Lamanilao]

La Dirección Estratégica es una de las asignaturas en Business School que más me interesa y me apasiona 🙂 Pues, como dice el refrán arriba citada, es la que siempre utiliza cada guerrero: estrategia, herramientas para conseguir la victoria…  Y nosotros, para que ganemos, ¿qué hacemos? Las cosas pequeñas a nuestro alcance para que ganemos en esa chiquita lucha… p.ej. lo que dice Musashi Miyamoto: Hoy, consigamos la victoria sobre el ‘yo’ de ayer, y mañana la victoria contra el ‘yo’ de hoy 😉

Strategy Lesson for Today:  RISK-RETURN Trade-off:  It’s a simple principle we study/teach in Finance, that has to be applied in real life: “Why am I a risk-taker? Because of the nature of the risk-return trade-off: I can’t expect to get any (greater) returns if I don’t undertake risks.”  El equilibrio Riesgo vs. Ganancias: No puedo esperar ganancias a no ser que corra el riesgo… y para una mayor ganancia, más riesgo aún…

Es una gran pena, que a veces, por miedo o por pereza, no queramos correr el riesgo necesario para la batalla: para ganar dinero, para conseguir prestigio profesional,…en fin, para disminuir los vicios en la vida personal y ganar en VIRTUDES, que son lo más importante para formar un carácter sólido… 🙂 😉

No podemos tener miedo ni a la vida, ni a la muerte. Cory Aquino, en aquella “Prayer for a Happy Death” que ella misma había compuesto, dijo: “Almighty God, most merciful Father: …You alone are my hope. You alone are my salvation.”

The Prayer for a Happy Death…. beautifully written by Corazon C. Aquino

Almighty God, most merciful Father
You alone know the time
You alone know the hour
You alone know the moment
When I shall breathe my last.

So, remind me each day,
most loving Father
To be the best that I can be.
To be humble, to be kind,
To be patient, to be true.
To embrace what is good,
To reject what is evil,
To adore only You.

When the final moment does come
Let not my loved ones grieve for long.
Let them comfort each other
And let them know
how much happiness
They brought into my life.
Let them pray for me,
As I will continue to pray for them,
Hoping that they will always pray
for each other.

Let them know that they made possible
Whatever good I offered to our world.
And let them realize that our separation
Is just for a short while
As we prepare for our reunion in eternity.

Our Father in heaven,
You alone are my hope.
You alone are my salvation.
Thank you for your unconditional love, Amen.
