Consequences….and Truth

June 17, 2009

While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions.
~Stephen Covey

I think it’s better said the other way around.

Try it this way:

While we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions, we ARE free to choose our actions.

Because, at least in my opinion, we can pretty well predict the consequences of most actions.

Negative consequences are usually unintended.

But predictable.

So we pretty much ARE in charge.

In my opinion.
