"Direction - not intentions, hopes, dreams, prayers, beliefs, intellect, or education - determines destination. I know it's tempting to believe that our good intentions, aspirations, and dreams somehow have the ability to do an end run around the decisions that we make on a daily basis...however, you and I will win or lose in life by the paths we choose."
"Like it or not, every single decision we make
takes us down the road closer to the destination that is our future."
from Breaking Busy, by Alli Worthington
