“What happens if we do nothing?”

This question isn’t asked enough. So often the choices presented to us all require action, and the choice to do nothing is never offered. Reminding yourself of option to do nothing is important. Doing nothing allows us to write less code, pass less laws, produce less waste, consume less, spend less, and general let the world be.

Sometimes doing nothing prevents a problem from getting worse. Doing nothing will allow more choices to become available as well. Like the option to take a nap, go play outside, or go make a snack.

Doing nothing is pretty great sometimes.
