Limited resources

It’s OK for me to decide not to pack a warm sweater because it doesn’t fit in my carry-on luggage. I just need to be willing to buy one at my destination if it gets too cold.

It’s OK for Texas to decide not to link its power grid to neighboring states because it doesn’t want to be subject to federal jurisdiction. It just needs to have a plan for the occasional snow storm.

No one has unlimited resources. If you look at your company’s risk assessment, you’ve probably decided not to address certain risks right now. That’s fine, but you need to have a plan for when the risk shows up sooner than expected.
