I love reading Richard Branson’s blog. I personally find it very inspiring, as he generally keeps things brief and thought provoking. Here’s something to chew on, from Richard’s meeting with top Chess player Garry Kasparov:

There are lots of business lessons to learn from playing chess.. He (Garry)… explained how you should always be ready to take a calculated risk, noting that “if you wish to succeed, you must brave the risk of failure. Attackers may sometimes regret bad moves, but it is much worse to forever regret an opportunity you allowed to pass you by.”
