Life is made up of choices, ranging from mundane to mind-boggling. What should I wear today? What do I want for breakfast? Who should I marry? What career should I pursue? Big and small, our choices work together to order our days, define who we are, and largely determine our levels of happiness and fulfillment. Ironically, it’s the little choices that often get more than their share of our time and attention, while the most fundamental choices, the ones that matter most and could make the biggest difference, get overlooked or put off. What do I want out of life? What kind of person do I want to be? It’s possible to go through life without ever tackling those big questions—millions of people do—but that approach to life is far more likely to end in disappointment and regret than in genuine accomplishment and happiness. As someone cleverly put it: If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll probably end up somewhere else. Don’t let that happen to you. Find what matters most to you and go for it.
