Complacency Kills

Complacency can kill momentum, kill hopes and dreams, or even worse, kill you.

The word “accident” gets overused. It is a crutch word. It is an excuse.

The definition of accident is; an unforeseen and unplanned event or circumstance.

The moment we wake up, we start making choices; consciously or subconsciously. Either way you make the decisions and will face the consequence.

Your current state of life is the result of your decisions leading up to now.

With that being said, I consider most, if not all happenings to be incidents; or occurrences of an action or situation that is a separate unit of experience.

Four reasons of incidents; I didn’t think, I didn’t see, I didn’t know, or I didn’t ask.

All of those reasons are a result of laziness or complacency; or self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies.

If you are complacent on the job site, if you cut corners, miss steps to the process, this could cause possible mishaps, thus leading to serious injuries or possible death of yourself or someone else.

Ways to avoid complacency; continue to learn and grow, start from scratch every day, surround yourself with people who will hold you accountable, focus on the process instead of the outcome, and consistently “recharge the batteries” by exercise, getting outside, starting a new hobby, etc.

Unless you are hit by a stray bullet from miles away, everything else is an incident. You could still consider the stray bullet an incident, depending on how deep you want to go with choices we make in life.
