“People take things for granted all the time. They may assume that things will stay the way that they are now. Or they may assume that the future will meet their expectations. And sometimes these kinds of assumptions will work out fine. That is, as long as things actually stay as they are, or the future unfolds as expected.
But, of course, in the real world things do change, and the future is unpredictable. The consequence is that taking things for granted can cause chaos for your finances.”
