Venn It’s Time to Choose

To follow up on my comments yesterday, about Stairway to Heaven.

One of the lines goes like this:

“Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on”

When you are faced with a choice, it can be stressful.

What are the pros and cons of each option?

What’s the price you pay if you choose wrong?

But the more I think about the choices in front of me, it’s not so much about picking a lane.

I’m learning to see my options as part of a Venn diagram.

You know, those overlapping circles.

Try to see your options as overlapping, integrated, and not distinct.

Can you satisfy more than one need at a time?

Can you take advantage of more than one opportunity at a time.

Even using this Venn approach, you still have to choose.

You have to start somewhere.

Can you minimize the costs of choosing wrong?

Do you have to get off the highway, drive around a strange neighborhood, and then get back onto the highway in a different direction?

Or can you calmly slide from one circle to another… maybe even work where the circles overlap?

Give it a try… you might have more options than you think.

What do you think?

See you tomorrow!
