Social pressure

The paradox of good judgement: Good judgment comes from experience. But experience comes from bad judgement.

It’s good to learn from our mistakes but it’s even better to learn from others.

Alas, to err is human.

With enough social pressure, we can talk ourselves into believing that we are exempt from the consequences of our actions.

That’s why we see people get behind the wheel after too many drinks.

That’s why we see people playing the Powerball.

The only way we can reduce our mistakes is to admit that we are making them. Only then does the door to change and possibility open up for us.
