Stephen Covey wrote, “You are free to make whatever
choice you want but you are not free from the consequences of the choice”
Sadly, consequences are what we fail to put our
attention to as we make decisions under uncertainties. It’s not that we are not aware of the consequences; it’s just that we fail to give them much importance because, like death, we keep believing that bad things won’t happen to us.

One of the best books I read this year was ‘No Shortcuts to the Top’.
This is an autobiography of Edmund Viesturs, wherein
he documents his 16-year journey summiting all 14 of the world’s eight-thousander mountain peaks (more than 8,000 meters above sea level), and his strategies to manage risk in extreme environments.
In one beautiful passage from the book, Viesturs wrote – “Although I remain uncertain about God or any particular religion, I believe in karma. What goes around, comes around. How you live your life, the respect that you give others and the mountain, and how you treat people in general will come back to you in kindred fashion. I like to talk about what I call the Karma National Bank. If you give up the summit to help rescue someone who is in trouble, you’ve put a deposit in that bank. And sometime down
the road, you may need to make a big withdrawal.”

Let’s do a good deed and make a deposit in our Karma Bank today and Stay Blessed Forever.
