This is an important insight drop bear. Imagine how many people wouldnt have been in their fatal traffic accidents if they would have simply done something quicker or slower or spent a minute longer chatting to a friend…
Once we get out and actually do things and do not simply spend time imagining we also often realize what is really needed. That’s why many people like Selco’s articles because he actually has experienced something that others just imagine (and most imagine as some sort of an action movie).
I think overall its very healthy to realize how little control we have over our lifes and accept that. Survival is an effort to have more control and it makes a lot of sense but in the end one wrong move or simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time can mean game over.
