Principle of Behavior 4.

Given the choice between a known bad and a potential good, I will choose the potential good.

Commentary: Choosing a known bad is easy. I know what to expect. However, choosing a known bad, simply because it is known, demonstrates either laziness or cowardice.

Choosing a potential good is hard. A potential is not guaranteed, it involves the unknown and the unknown is literally not-known. As a result, such decisions are uncomfortable or scary and generally have unexpected consequences.

While a potential good is unknown and may be uncomfortable or scary, not everything unknown, uncomfortable or scary is a potential good.

Despite analysis and intellectual judgment, at some point an emotional decision is made between a known bad and an unknown potential good. At that point I have to ask myself:

  • Do I repeat what I've done before?
  • Do I try something different?

Though black versus potential-white decisions are generally rare, the resulting decisions are life-altering, watershed events.
