Analysis of the consequences of a decision – not just on something involving yourself, but where others are vulnerable – is not a “he who hesitates is lost” proposition. It could be more along the lines of “look before you leap,” for he who leaps before he looks is more likely to experience loss than the one who hesitates long enough to WISELY assess something, especially where others are deeply concerned and involved. We live in a self preening, ego driven world where too many people sing in the key of me. There are even some “Christian” religions that also encourage this kind of mindset, with their bless me club mentality. Where there’s a demand for ear tickling, there will be suppliers. It’s the nature of the beast. But at some point, there is going to be an accounting. This is a form of spiritual roulette: just because the m.o. has worked in the past, and you’ve been bailed out before does not mean it’s going to work forever. The odds are less and less in your favor. If this shoe fits, wear it. And be forewarned.
