A friend of mine has recently launched a blog with an interesting purpose. Don Shapiro (LinkedIn Profile, @DonShapiro1) came up with an idea to pursue the decisions people make with a blog called Life Is A Fork In The Road. The premise is that our life is made up of several, maybe even hundreds of choices.
A fork is one of those decisions that becomes a significant event. Don is examining how people choose which fork to take. His desire is to collect stories and see if there are any patterns. His end goal is a book on the topic that is based on the stories.
Every choice eliminates other choices, many forever. I can think of several significant forks myself, and many things that would have never been possible had I not taken the fork. If you’re like me, and you tend to think back and plan forward at the end of the year, take a minute and invest in an interesting work. Please hop over to Life Is A Fork and share a story or two. I’ll be doing that in a few days myself. It will be interesting to see how Don’s pursuit of his particular fork ends up.
