‘In a gentle way, you can shake the world’ is a description of success by Mahatma Gandhi. Every single living creature has its own description of success and, they intentionally or unintentionally do their best to be at that temporary state. Success is a continuous process therefore, one needs always chase his/her passion to make the success sustained for his/her life. There can be several ways throughout this chase, pole points can be said as going cruel and taking risks without and an eye blink and doing calculations where each step is taken, in other words remain his/her feet one step back unless he/she is so sure about the consequences. Personally, if I have ever been asked to choose one of these oppositions, I would choose plan carefully and there are two reasons behind that.

Firstly, equivalent of success for me is success for us. Us, here leans for the people I belong to in my life, the project that my team has and things like that. So, if I am going to do something in the name of being successful I always consider the people, the work beside me. I cannot feel successful by myself, there has to be something or someone else that I am also making successful. That makes me responsible for making plans, doing utility/loss analysis for more than one thing, one dimension. I need to create options that I can take a step-in and if the situation is complicated than it looks, there has to be sub options as well. I need to be gentle about what I am doing, as Gandhi says. And after all, getting together all the work and schematizing the situation I am facing ways are going to be crystal clear and then, I will be picking the what is the most beneficial for me, us.

Second reason that I avoid taking risks most of the time is the sustainability. Most popular example of taking risk is tossing coin for most of the people and there is always possibilities you are facing, possibilites that are not under control. There will be always what-if scenarios in the mind of risk-taker and this is something health consuming in my belief. On the other hand, if one selects to plan the outcomes at least for spending some time he/she will know the upper and lower bounds of the thing that he/she is getting into. I have a self-created design for the planning process. I spend at least 1/10 time of the whole work to make plans and until now I had enough considerations of things I have done in my life.

Overall, in a perspective from this essay, sometimes taking risks can get you success more than one can imagine and sometimes making plans can save you from a total loss. I never underestimate the absolute power of the earnings of both sides and I always respect whichever side is picked but in my belief success is something to be shared and also, since it is continuous process it should remain sustained. Otherwise, it is nothing but one time luck.
