- Dag Hammarskjold

About this Quote

This quote by Dag Hammarskjold speaks to the concept that when we play it safe, we create a world of insecurity. By playing it safe, we are not taking threats or pushing limits, which can cause stagnancy and a lack of progress. When we don't take dangers, we do not challenge ourselves or the status quo, and this can lead to a lack of innovation and creativity. Furthermore, when we do not take dangers, we do not challenge the systems and structures that remain in place, which can result in an absence of accountability and openness. Ultimately, when we play it safe, we produce a world of insecurity since we are not pushing ourselves or the systems around us to be better.
