It’s a quick fall into ruin.
Seth Godin asks the question about where apathy starts and when it becomes failure.
His example is about a shoddy repair on a couch, but there’s a larger lesson to be learned.
The smallest compromise on the smallest thing can snowball into major issues.
Where have you compromised on something small only to have it become something huge?
An unrepaired car? A small water leak? Going to bed angry at your partner?
Compromising a value on something small can have disastrous impacts.
Every time you don’t do something you KNOW you should is inviting disaster.
Fix the car. Repair the faucet. Say you’re sorry.
Small impacts now avoid larger impacts later.
