Hedging your bets
Tuesday 1 July 2014, 2.48am HKT
HEDGING YOUR BETS is to look for the safest and best-performing choice — to reduce your loss on something (say, a bet or an investment) by using the gains to offset the losses.
In life, it’s also a way to avoid choosing one thing or side, so that whatever happens in the future, you won’t have problems or seem stupid.
But realise it’ll be the source of your greatest anxiety too.
Hedging your bets usually works only in fair weather.
If you’re not the type who thrives on stress or can make decisions on incomplete information, then take a stance, stand your ground, and live with it — for better or worse.
