You’ve been captivated by the vision, or by the visionary. You are excited about the possibilities and ready to make the leap.
Before you do, consider the downside. What is the worst that could happen if this doesn’t work out? What if the visionary moves on? What if the organization changes course? What if this sure bet isn’t such a sure thing after all?
Don’t be crippled by fear of the downside, but at least consider it. Then you can move forward with eyes wide open, confident of your decision even as you are aware of the risks.
