Direction > Decision

Most choices in life aren’t between right and wrong but between right and right or wrong and wrong.

Opposite options don’t present themselves because the direction we face has already dictated which options make it into the decision process.

In other words, if we’re generally headed in the right direction, we’re only presented with right options. We don’t even consider the wrong options. That’s reassuring until we realize it also works the other way around: if we’re headed in the wrong direction, we’re only presented with wrong options because we don’t even consider the right ones.

So focus on the big stuff, and stop sweating the details as much. It’s more important to face the right direction than make the right decision.
