People have the urge to throw out any task that might seem complex and, therefore, completely overlooking the right or wrong of that decision. We are constantly focused on accomplishing a task in the most convenient way possible that the right way to do something usually seems bothersome and non-compatible with our to-do list.

But it taught me the lesson that life in unpredictable, you never can know what is going to happen next. Life could change in a blink of eye. When you sit down and think about this, it makes you want to be prepared the most you can for life.
