Every once in awhile we stumble into unexpected situations that have the potential to change us.
Like finding yourself in a used bookstore in the middle of a weekday afternoon when you are normally at work. But today you had an appointment that was cancelled just as you arrived and next door was the bookstore. The shelves are lined with unfamiliar titles, any one of which could light a new idea in your mind, or could be a complete dud. Do you risk $3.95 on that old paperback, or move along? Life is a choose-your-own-adventure book with millions of diverging choices played out on a stage shared with billions of interconnected people.
The trick is you never know when the situation will arise. When it does, are you prepared to make a decision that could propel you in a new direction?
