We live in a world that is changing at an ever-increasing rate. Surrounded by an overwhelming number of choices available in today’s society, people wind up in paralysis when struggling to make the best possible choice.

It’s not the power of a particular choice that can bless or curse one’s entire life. In fact, we obtain what we have been striving for, and lose what we ignored, as we always shall. In the long run, we won’t be denied a bit of what we commit in pursuing, nor will we be able to steal achievement for which we don’t even try. The true accumulation of life never swells or stops, regardless of a good or bad choice being made.

As far as I am concerned, a single choice is of neither life-influence nor absolute good; trying to figure out the best choice is neither necessary nor possible. A wise man would settle for something that is good enough, rather...
