Everybody’s got a road for you to follow. There are countless how-to-guide, ________ for idiots and the dummy’s guide to everything. So many roads. You just have to pick up a road map and follow the manual.
The guides work…up to a point. They’ll get you to a certain level of success and help you avoid a lot of early mistakes that trip people up while starting out. But after a while, there’s only so far the guides can take you. The pavement turns to gravel which turns to dirt and you realize you’ve hit the end of the road.
What happens then?
You have to make your own road. You have to figure it out on your own. You have to adapt.
You have to find your own way.
How-to guides are nice and easy, but they only work up to a certain point. Eventually, you have to make up the rules yourself. You have to improvise.
You get to choose your own adventure – and that’s when it starts to get fun 🙂
