I was watching a presentation on risk today and I saw a symmetry between risks and impediments that I had never realized before. With both, the hard part is awareness. Once you’ve discovered a risk or impediment, half the battle is over. Seeing risks before they become impediments is hard. The discovery step is the part where I tend to fall down.

How many times has someone pointed out a risk or impediment and you find yourself palm slapping your face in embarrassment because you missed it (and it was SO obvious)?

When it comes to managing risks and impediments, seeing is often the hardest part.
