Life is comprised of a series of choices; we all make them everyday — whether relatively mundane, like what to eat for lunch, or something more pressing, such as “should I run this red light (and risk getting a ticket or causing a wreck) or just get to work late and take my lumps?” Of course, far more serious situations than the aforementioned examples will pop up throughout life, but the point is that regardless of the gravity of the situation, decisions have to be made on a daily basis. Some would argue that there are times when we can choose not to choose, but the logical and philosophical complexities involved with that are beyond the scope of this blog entry. We have to live with the decisions we make, which is why it’s important to make good ones. “Good,” however, is a subjective term; all choices are subject to scrutiny and are potentially controversial. What 5 people approve of might be completely unacceptable to 15 others. But when you’re satisfied with the decision you made and you feel comfortable saying you’d make the same decision if you had it to do all over again, then you can direct everybody else’s attention to that very famous Cee-Lo Green song.
