When you come to a fork in the road...

When you come to a fork in the road, take it. This sage advice is attributed to Yogi Berra. It makes more sense than you might think on first reading. We are continually coming to forks in the road in our career. Do we stay in our current position with a large corporation or take a chance on a start-up with big upside potential.? Which sales territory do we choose among the several open? Which of two competitive job offers do we take? Is this the time to follow our passion with our own business?

We must make these decisions based on incomplete information. There is no way to know for sure how things will turn out if we travel the path on the right or the one on the left. There are too many variables. Make the best decision you can and then focus on using your talents and expertise to get results. Don't get stuck at the crossroads.
