Why a Deal with the Devil?

A deal with the devil.

A common enough trope that we should all be familiar with. You make a deal for something you want, but you give up something vital. And what almost always turns out to be too much.

At some point you'll be offered a deal. A deal that will blind you to everything else. A deal so rich in upside that it goes right to your head. But you can't have an up without a down. We have to keep in mind that all deals have consequences. And we need to think of whether we can handle those consequences before we've shook the hand and signed the paper.

This week I chose “deal with the devil” as a cautionary message. Don't run so fast toward what you want that you forget to look where your feet will land.
