I found this at DeeperBlue.com, a blog about free diving.
It relates in a roundabout way to security – the overall awareness of the environment one needs to have for survival on our planet.
The author used awareness to decide not to go surfing – and then got information that confirmed his assessment.
We use awareness, observation and assessment throughout our lives – not just for security purposes. Purposefully being aware; having a mental (or physical) checklist to determine whether we attempt an action or not, may enhance our quality of life. Rather than just jumping in and hoping for the best, a few moments reflection can make a big difference in your life.
