what did you trust?

Risk is connected to trust.

Daily life involves trust in many situations. Trusting your washing machine not to destroy your clothes. Trusting the bus to arrive on time and the driver to find her way. Trusting that the elevator is properly constructed and won’t collapse. Trusting the bank to take care of your savings.

Without trust, everyday life becomes impossible.

But we cannot trust blindly. When driving, you won’t trust a kid to take the wheel. Doing so seems unnecessarily risky.

Trust depends on risk. And unless properly handled, trust creates risk.

In whom - and what - did you trust today?
