October 9, 2016: Careful
His character was given and it was so that he was careful by nature. Too careful, in fact: risk averse was an understatement. Yet, it fit with his world view, and so he was content. This, of course, until his world view was shattered. The more he lived, the more he learned. He came to understand that things never remain as they are. He learned that things change, and they can change for better or for worse. Newly accustomed to risk and reward, he began to take chances. Careful! Be careful of being too careful, he began to tell himself.
