However, with the implementation of risk response strategies, there is the potential for secondary risks to be generated.

Some of the practices I've embraced are:
1. Set a routine and stick with it (unless there's a really good reason to change it).
2. Remain open to opportunities - you never know where they will come from.
3. Be twice as patient as you would have otherwise - there is probably a good reason that person is not getting back in touch with you as quickly as you feel they should have.
