The Third Road

None of the above

When I was at a crossroads a few years back deciding what I. Wanted to do I couldn’t choose between becoming an English teacher at a university here, or becoming a translator. So, I took the middle road and got a master’s degree in applied linguistics. My thinking at the time was that this degree would give me options. If one thing didn’t work, I always had the other to fall back on.

You always have both options. And even more than that, there is also a third option.

None of the above.

Your road doesn’t have to be decided by a decision you made decades ago, and it doesn’t have to be set in concrete either. Giving yourself more options in the future may sound like a good plan, but you always have the option of more options. You always have the option of the third road.

Well, unless you limit your thinking that is.

ENJOYED THIS? HAVE MORE.
