What small action did you take that you later realized had “butterfly effect” that turned into something much more important?

  1. My mom made me go to a football game for my school when I was in the 8th grade. I didn’t want to go but I eventually caved and went. I ended up talking to a random person, and down the road he became my best friend. My friend introduced me to another friend, who introduced me to yet another friend. That friend eventually set me up on a date with my future wife. Now I’m married with kids. Who knows what would have happened if I didn’t go to that game.

  2. I was waiting tables at a restaurant and I picked up a shift on my day off.

    During that shift one of my friends who recently quit came in to get his last check, so I got talking with him and asked about his new job, then asked if they were hiring, which they were.

    He set me up with an interview, I got hired and trained on how to use CAD, and after being there for four years I got hired at a bigger company making more….which is where I still am today.

  3. I made an off handed joke to a coworker who responded with his own off handed joke. This caused me to spiral for over 24 hours thinking that nobody liked me, my career was over, and I was a detestable human being. I recognized that my state of emotions was irrational, so I accessed my work EAP to go to counselling.

    My therapist gave me three sessions before she told me that my fiancé was too dependant on his drinking and it was ruining my life as well as his.

    I left my fiancé. Started getting promotions ( one of them led to me meeting my now husband).

  4. Not me but my mom made a friend take biology 2 in high school. They were doing something with blood types and the friend found out her blood type could not have come from her parents.

    Long story short, the girl is now closer to her biological parents than she is her adoptive mom and dad.
