Life is a 4-Way Stop

For most of us life is like standing in the middle of a 4-way Stop intersection and not knowing which road to take. There are all kinds of benefits, rewards and challenges on all the roads.

How do you choose?

It could be that in each direction you can look down the road and see benefits and challenges? Or, you might just see challenges? Too seldom do we only see all benefits.

You might take the one that looks easiest.

What to do?

If you have a map your decision is easy. If you know where you want to end up you’ll know which road to take.

But, if you don’t have a map you’re Alice, in Alice in Wonderland when she meets the Cheshire Cat.

“Which road do I take?" (Alice)
"Where do you want to go?" (Cat)
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter. If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.”

Where do you want to go? Which road are you taking?
