Two Boats at Once

Once we decide to carve our own paths, where do we go? Grad school or continue working? This industry or that one? Girl A or Girl B?

We’re constantly assaulted by a string of decisions. It’s such a paralyzing selection that we often don’t want to make a choice. Or, if we could only keep our options open, we don’t HAVE to make a choice.

But choosing everything is effectively choosing nothing, and choosing nothing is still a choice.

In Chinese, there is a saying “脚踏两条船” (stepping on two boats at once). It usually refers to cheating, but I think it applies to any decision – either way, there’s never a happy ending!
