One of my favorite books of all time is “The Road Less Traveled” by Scott Peck. Perhaps it was the timing that made it so impactful. I was young, floundering, feeling like I was missing out on something but didn’t know what. Searching for a greater truth. The book taught me how to make a choice, that I had a choice, and how to take responsibility for those choices. I have made some bad choices but more good than bad. If you are paying attention your learn from your choices.
“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” Aristotle
