I'm amazed by the number of technical and social safety measures there are looking out for me. 


Last night I got emailed by my bank that my debit card had suspicious transactions. I called them and got it handled immediately. 

This morning I had a doctor's appointment with a sleep specialist. I had put it in my calendar, and when I went to look at my daily overview, the phone warned me to get on my way due to the excessive traffic. 

I have so many things like this in my life, implicitly and explicitly. Having the habit to save money is one such safety net, as is having loving friends and family who watch out for me. 

I'm a big fan of the concept of interdependence, where capable, strong people become stronger still, through mutual reliance. 

It's neat to see it happen for me, to me, at such a personal level.
