I've Read UNSCRIPTED

Speed++I can guarantee that anyone who would ask someone to make life changing decisions for them are not cut out for the fastlane and very likely to fail. Fastlane is not for everyone, that's why the slowlane and sidewalk exist. Again, I don't mean to be mean but I have a hard time understanding some of these guys' behavior.
This is exactly it! Where does the responsibility for your life fall? On you! Own it.I'm starting to receive a lot of emails, and even messages on this forum that request advice on major, life-changing decisions ... as if, I hold some type of crystal ball that knows the right decision for your life, your family, and your happiness.
Do I quit my job?
Do I move across the country?
Do I build the website myself? Or outsource?
Do I risk going into business with Joe Blow or stay in school?
Do I do this?
Do I do that?
Folks, I don't know!
I can't make these decisions for you. Everyone is different and only you know you. Some people are dealmakers. Some are introverts. Some are networkers. Some are analytical geniuses.
And yet, please understand that every decision of major consequence in your life carries with it RISK. And yet, RISK is fundamental to the Fastlane because it is the ROAD LESS TRAVELED and often involves sacrifice, and hard-work beyond the "well-traveled" road.
You have to do what is right for YOU and what YOU think will make you happy. And guess what? For some folks, that just might be a Slowlane -- no worries -- life is about happiness and being resolute in your dreams and goals. Whatever path you take, understand that everything extraordinary in life often involved an extraordinary risk.
If you are having trouble making a big decision in your life, I suggest you use the WADM decision matrix that I have used so many times in my life.

I have been HAPPY in every decision this matrix solved for me.
So to sum it up, I don't know if you should quit college.
I don't know if you should quit your job.
I don't know if you should move to another country.
I don't know if you should quit that business and start another.
I don't know if you should piss-off your parents and do what they don't want.
I don't know if you should learn how to code, or just partner.
While I'm flattered that I am asked about such big decisions, my answers are automatically BIASED based on my life experience. This does not guarantee you will get a good answer based on what is best for YOU.
Take a deep breath, and ask yourself ... What is going to make me happy not just this week, but over the long term? Should you be blessed with another 40 years of life, is this the path you want to take?
In general, you should already know what my answer will be ... the Fastlane path. But again, that is ME.
I am not you.
You may possess other strengths, talents, and attributes that make the other answer, BETTER.
Good luck and happy decision-making!
