T-222 : Prevention Ounces
It occurred to me recently that my decision to wait so long to go to the doctor about my toe is not all that different than the decision I made while driving home from Florida near Ozark, Arkansas years ago when I kept trying to go to one more exit to find cheaper gas only to finally run out and end up a day late and $1000 poorer. Who knows how much the toe is going to cost. Both experiences have been good for me. They're helping me realize that I actually need to be less tolerant at times when action is needed. I pride myself on my tolerance. But, just like anything, too much of it can be detrimental. Somewhere between tolerance and rashness is where we all ought to be, right?
