Small Changes in the Wrong Direction

“The safest road to hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.” C. S. Lewis

Most really stupid things happen in very small increments. Doing something a little bit worse than what I am already doing doesn’t seem so bad. Be careful of small changes in the wrong direction. They are far more sinister than they seem. Where do you think you may be slowly slipping in the wrong direction? The sooner you wake up, acknowledge it and get going the other way, the better.
