Since I talked about Tetris earlier in the week, I came across this article:

 Chris Brogan (the author) is Publisher and CEO of Owner Magazine, a business magazine helping you improve your worth by growing your capabilities and connections. In the article he talks about how your decisions can have compounding affects. You stay up late, so you have a harder time getting up to go to the gym, which may make you late for work, etc., etc., etc.  The question he asks in his write-up is: What decisions are you making without much thought?

It's a good question, and falls in line with the Tetris article. Mistakes stack, accomplishments disappear. Are your decisions, even the smallest ones, working towards accomplishments, or towards making mistakes?

If the answer is mistakes, then you need to start looking at the next falling block (Tetris or Domino), and plan ahead for it. Keep yourself from getting knocked over by the blocks. Adjust how they fall, even minutely, and you can change the course to something more beneficial to you. Enough little changes can net some big results.

The only one who can move the blocks is you.
