Lovely post Mike. I’m familiar with the difficulties of making those kinds of big decisions. The difficulty even has a name, Fredkin’s Paradox: “ The more equally attractive two alternatives seem, the harder it can be to choose between them – no matter that, to the same degree, the choice can only matter less.”
As interesting as this is, unfortunately I haven’t found that knowing this makes the decision-making any easier.
