I shouldn’t. I know I shouldn’t. Sound familiar?

I shouldn’t. I know I shouldn’t. Sound familiar?

Why wait to learn a lesson by making a mistake?

Learn it before the mistake to eliminate the suffering mistakes create.

Do you like chaos that much?

Flirting with fate?

Throwing caution to the wind that you know full well is unpredictable?

You know that going in.

“I really shouldn’t do that.”

“I know I shouldn’t go there.”

But what the hell?

You like hell that much huh?

The chances that you will be that exception or that one in a billion excites you.

When’s the last time the wind turned your way as the result of you doing something really irresponsible?

Why wait to learn a lesson by making a mistake?

Why not anticipate the mistake, and then avoid the mistake?

There would be a lot fewer mistakes if we all took fewer chances on the impossible.

The world has too many train wrecks for people, because they took chances they knew to be unwise and frankly ridiculous.

Everybody makes mistakes. Many discoveries are made by mistakes. Those rare occurrences justify the entire world being in a never-ending mistake-making mode.

Risk assessment is something all animals innately know how to do, yet the human animal seems mostly to ignore the process. It’s free. It’s in us. You don’t need to take a course or study a book or get a degree to use it. It’s yours. Take advantage of the bells and whistles that are part of every animal’s design. Do it for your own sake.

Find your thrills of risk-taking in some other department.

Looking back you see that your risky behavior didn’t just affect you; it affected everyone.

Stop walking around and talking around like a walking talking time bomb. Eventually you know that bomb will go off, so why risk the chaos created by it?

Unless you enjoy hurting people, including yourself, in which case society has ways of separating those who do harm to others by engaging in erratic actions.

It worked.

How many times have you actually said that only to discover a short while later that the benefit didn’t outweigh the adversity caused by the action as you thought it would?

Like I said, the world has too many train wrecks for people. Keep your trains on the track and you’ll get to where you need to be quicker absent the pain of the mistake.
