Choose one

How do you avoid being incapacitated by an overwhelming number of choices? Choose one, and stick with it.

A limitless number of things are possible, but your time and resources are limited. Choose one, and don’t look back.

Give your skills, your passion, your experience a clear objective upon which to focus their power. Get something good and useful done instead of fretting and wondering about what to do.

Giving your commitment to a specific possibility means rejecting all the others. But if you fail to commit to any possibility, that’s a rejection of them all.

A single fulfilled possibility is worth more than an infinite number of unfulfilled possibilities. Zero in on the specific value you wish to create, and actually create it.

What you do with whatever you choose is at least as important as which choice you select. Now choose one, and make the very most of it.
