If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…
It’s easy to tell others to take risks. It’s harder to live by that rule, especially if you’re wise enough to consider the consequences. Have faith. Take a leap and trust that someone will catch you.
Weigh your choices.
Don’t hesitate to give to a stranger but don’t give everything away.
Be who you are. Everybody else is taken
*** end quote ***
I’m not sure that you can “weigh” choices?
I used to think that way. Even had software, later spreadsheets, later mind maps, all to define the “choosing process”.
Some decisions turned out well; others poorly. It really had little to do with anything.
Like watching poker on TV. The best decision can work out poorly based on luck.
So, like the poker pro, you try to play the odds as best you can and roll with the punches.
A lot of the results depend upon “luck”.
There are really no “wrong” decisions.
Argh! Life is hard and then you die.
