All actions have consequences, just like your mom always told you.
What she might not have told you is that a consequence can also be a good thing. Winning the lottery is a consequence of buying a ticket, right?
She also might not have told you that doing nothing is as much of an act as doing something. And, hence, has a consequence equal to doing something.
Everything we do is causal. Doing something, doing nothing, these are choices. And all choices have consequences. Some of those are good. Some of those are bad.
The biggest thing to know, and you need to know it well, is that we’re all inside the cycle. Nothing you can do to get out of it.
If I were you, I’d make the most of it.
