Don’t Worry — Everyone Will Know

The last time I heard someone utter, “Don’t worry — no one will ever know,” the response was, “What are you smoking, crack?”

The crack comment was not meant literally, but figuratively. It made its point: Don’t assume that you can get away with something; people do find out, and you have to think through decisions. The result: The action suggested was not taken — success.

We all experience those moments. The moment when someone in the room says, “Don’t worry, no one will ever know.” If we are lucky, we have someone else in the room who snaps us back to reality. Someone who asks, “Are you serious?” Someone who reminds us to stay on the right path.
