"When you come to a fork in the road, take it!" - Yogi Berra
What the great Yankee was referring to was directions to his house. It's the same distance whether you keep to the right or left.
But the lesson applies to our careers as well. Opportunities will come and go. You'll face difficult decisions. You'll come to forks in the road—one leading you in the right direction and the other, the wrong. Sometimes, you might have to go down the wrong path to know for sure the other one is correct. But, sometimes, both paths lead you to the same place.
Either way, you'll never know until you act. Pick a road, be confident in your decision, and know that (regardless of how many times you have to redirect yourself) it will all work out in the end.
