Not a major post, just a passing thought.
I was listening to an interview with the author on this story about the middle east.
The article is interesting, but what caught my attention in particular was a phrase he used and its applicability to risk identification:
"the way to avert tragedy is to think tragically".
It's important to be a "Debbie Downer" when you're identifying risk. It's a certain skill to be able to be really negative and identify all things that can go most horribly wrong and then turn around and be optimistic about the project.
But develop that skill, and you'll serve your project better.
