"Fork in the Road"
So it’s been a while since I’ve posted a video with some great lyrics that directly apply to my life, but this song / line couldn’t be more appropriate today.
"Just know I chose my own fate
I drove by the fork in the road and went straight”
Thank you Jay-Z and Eminem for this very inspiring and entrepreneurial song (how often do you hear someone say that).
I don’t claim to have a childhood or struggle that even remotely compares to them. These guys had it rough. I’m not confident that I would have been able to make it through everything they had to deal with growing up. But that’s a story for another time.
I’ve been tossing around a couple of options and doing some soul searching recently, and I have a couple of amazing opportunities in front of me. Opportunities that require a decision to be made.
So naturally, in my typical fashion, I got to this fork in the road and went straight. It’s really the only way I know. Time to make my own path again.
If I were still following the direction of the path, I’d being sitting in a cubicle at an international bank busting my ass to fix failing projects and be completely miserable about it.
Trail blazing here we come…
