Every time we take a shortcut, we rack up a debt.
This happens when we choose… –
- to sleep less than we should
- a short-term design solution
- to write hacky code
- rush through the process of building trust
- to eat junk
- to skip exercise – both mental and physical
There’s always good reasons to rack up debt. And it isn’t wrong to rack up debt either – they just signal periods of imbalance. And we need to experience periods of imbalance to earn and appreciate balance.
The only thing that we must take note of, however, is that the debts always come due. Always. And with interest.
Be aware of your outstanding debts and aim to pay them before they come due.
