Life's Events Require Extensive Planning

“Hey Stan, guess what! I am going to Nepal for my birthday.”

“No. Really? That takes a lot of planning.”

“You sound surprised.”

“I am a little surprised by all of your choices. You never cease to amaze me.”

“Oh Stanley. I like a challenge. You know that.”

“So I guess you will need to think about vaccines, wool socks, and equipment. What else?”

“Just like you said. It takes a lot of planning, but anything new does. Right?”

“I don't have to tell you that some endeavors take more planning than others”

“ You've heard the term ‘pay-forward.' I expect to learn a lot about myself while I’m in the Himalayas.”

“Well I expect a postcard!”

“Hey Stan, guess what! I am bringing my mother to come live with me.”

“No. Really? That takes a lot of planning.”

“You sound surprised.”

“I am a little surprised by all of your choices. You never cease to amaze me.”

“Oh Stanley. I like a challenge. You know that.”

“So I guess you will need to think about vaccines, wool socks, and equipment. What else?”

“Just like you said. It takes a lot of planning, but anything new does. Right?”

“I don’t have to tell you that some endeavors take more planning than others.”

“ You've heard the term ‘pay-forward.’ I expect to learn a lot about myself while living with her.”

“Well I expect a postcard!”

The expression "pay it forward" is used to describe the concept of asking the beneficiary of a good deed to repay it to others instead of to the original benefactor. The concept is old, but the phrase may have been coined by Lily Hardy Hammond in her 1916 book In the Garden of Delight.

"Pay it forward" is implemented in contract law of loans in the concept of third party beneficiaries. Specifically, the creditor offers the debtor the option of "paying" the debt forward by lending it to a third person instead of paying it back to the original creditor. Debt and payments can be monetary or by good deeds. A related type of transaction, which starts with a gift instead of a loan, is alternative giving.
