<p>
I spend a lot time thinking of <a href="/h">alternate ways to approach life</a>.
</p><p>
I re-consider my hierarchy of values.
</p><p>
When values change, the plan of action needs to change, too.
</p><p>
For example, if I decide that personal growth is top priority, then I plan a life pushing outside my comfort zone.
But if I decide that creative output is top priority, then I plan a tranquil life without obstacles, so I can just create.
</p><p>
But the only way to decide — <a href="/donkey">to not be Buridan’s donkey</a> — is to <strong>go give it a try</strong>.
</p><p>
There’s a huge difference between in-theory versus in-practice.
<strong>
If you’ve been deliberating on something for a while, get it out of your head, and into the world.
</strong>
</p><p>
If it turns out to be a mistake, that’s fine.
At least you’ll know it’s a mistake <strong>in fact</strong>, instead of just in theory.
