Life to a great extent revolves around choices we make and decisions we take.
Being aware of possible consequences and choosing sensibly is often something we only consider in hindsight, often to our detriment.
We may be fearful in taking a definite decision. Sometimes the results of a decision might be damagingly irreversible, which is why deep consideration is often required of us even in seemingly small or mundane matters.
On the other hand, when an opportunity or situation arises it may well be better to take a decision and move with the opportunity rather than linger on in limbo, ever analysing; even a ‘mistake’ can be a step forward in a positive direction.
In actual fact the more mistakes we make the more successful we are likely to be, because we are ‘practicing’ more. (Please note: this does not apply to every activity or profession in life!)
