TALK // No one ever plans to make a bad decision. But oftentimes, we make a bunch of little compromises—little decisions, patterns, and even habits—that eventually lead to a big mistake. However, if we’re careful, we can catch these little compromises early on with the help of other people. The people closest to us tend to see things about us that we don’t notice. We might think we’ve got it all together, but they can help us catch the little things in our lives that threaten to take us down completely. This week, ask someone you trust to point out the little compromises in your life that you may not see. This isn’t an easy ask to make, but it may just keep those small compromises now from becoming a big problem down the road.
