I’ve often been told to dream big. The sky’s the limit; the possibilities are endless. I guess statements like these are supposed to be inspiring, but instead, they terrify me. Confronting an infinite number of career and life choices is paralyzing. What if I make a wrong choice, and what if that choice eliminates other choices? For me, it was easier to stay stuck in place, doing nothing or something not great but neutral, rather than face that kind of decision-making. Fortunately, it’s not true — the possibilities are not endless. We have choices, but we also have limits.
