Being ludicrous is more than just taking risks; it’s stepping outside of our comfort zones and seeing how we respond.  It’s testing ourselves and seeing what works and what doesn’t.  It means becoming intimately familiar with ourselves, our strengths and weaknesses, and making choices based on what we want to accomplish.
