And this has made us dependent on it.
We check the weather before setting off on a trip.
And we download directions to get to our destination.
But getting rained on, or getting lost, never killed anyone and makes for a good story.
That’s because it makes the journey as important as the destination.
Ultimately, anything worth doing entails risks.
And, in many instances, we're only as good as the risks we take, as Fuller's sailing metaphor reminds us.
"He that will not sail until all dangers are over must never put to sea." Thomas Fuller
