Here's Blog Quote #539...
A good scare is worth more than good advice."
This plays into the hands of the old adage "Actions speak louder than words."
People can talk all they want and give great advice... however the listener may not act, or pay real close attention -- until something monumental happens.
Not saying it's right or wrong. Unfortunately -that's kind of how humans are. The wisest of men try to pay a tad more attention-- but still sometimes a scary event is the catalyst needed for action to be taken.
That's my view...what say you?
