The Default Alternative

If you do not decide what your life will be and move confidently in that direction, you will slip into the default life alternative; which is whatever life hands you and whatever comes your way.  You will always be following the path of least resistance, like a piece of wood drifting in a river.

By contrast, if you decide on a clear life plan, you will be like a rock in the river.  The path of least resistance will not push you to the side, but it will go around you.  The same thing will happen in your life.  As long as you are a drifting piece of wood in the river, the currents will toss you around in the path of least resistance.  With a decision, you will stand firm no matter how hard the water pounds at you.

The point of describing the default alternative in this part is to have some fun so you realize this is what you will get if you don’t take control.
