The entire life of a human being depends upon ”yes” and “no” uttered two or three times between the ages of sixteen and twenty-five.
One of mine was when I said "no" to going to college directly out of high school. It took me twenty more years to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I'm glad I waited. My decision and direction at 38 was much wiser than it would have been at 18, and I never regretted it.
What were your two or three times? Or at least one of them.
