There’s an opportunity cost to everything that you might want to do.
Whether you decide to go to school, start a business, go bagpacking in the mountains, or learn a new set of skills.
Its easy to measure the opportunity cost of any such pursuit and dismiss the idea if things don’t work out.
However, there is risk associated with not taking the risk.
The myopic in us fails to see the cost of going with the flow, of not taking the risk to pivot and change direction, of submitting to default.
If you are faced with the choice of either keep going or step back and validate, I hope you make this decision with a more biased, and less analytical approach.
Remember that the disconnect you earn by seizing an opportunity is a huge reward in itself.
