Survey says…

It surprised me to find, while thumbing through our son’s college sociology textbook, that when asked this survey question of the wealthy and of the poor, ‘Do you think your personal choices affect your financial position?’ that two different answers were given.

The wealthy said yes, and the poor said no.

The truth is that every choice affects every other choice.  Choosing not to study for a test affects the grade a student might earn.  That, in turn, affects the overall grade point average, which affects college choices, which may affect ability to earn…

Choosing to be married eliminates the choice to be single, though some still may live as though they are single within marriage…

May we be wise to see beyond the immediacy of the choice at hand and be forward thinking to the future choices it allows or eliminates.
