A lot of people are leading very dangerous lives today. The vast majority of them are not living hazardously. It is not because they are jumping off cliffs, paragliding, rock climbing or participating in some other form of extreme sports, or because of other dangerous activities they may be involved in. The real danger is much worse than that, and much more subtle as well. The greatest danger comes more from a lack of activity than doing too much. Inactivity comes from a casual attitude to life, by just taking things as they come, without a conscious effort to affect the outcome. That is dangerous, because then you have no idea where you are going to end up or what you will be doing when you get there.
If a casual attitude leads to loss of control and danger, what would the opposite be? Intentional. You have to be intentional with life. You have to be purposeful with planning your goals, deliberate with your daily activities, calculated with your career, and premeditated with your personal development. You have to have a goal and a plan, a destination and a map, a dream and a vision. You can’t leave the life you have to casual circumstances. Take charge. Be intentional and get the life you want and deserve.
Don’t take the casual approach to life. Casualness leads to casualties. – Jim Rohn
