You don't have to know the right answer. But you MUST answer the question.
When you're faced with a life dilemma (new job, new career, new city, new partner) -- this is a good rule to help you move forward:
*You don't have to know the right answer. But you MUST answer the question.*
I arrived at this rule because of great advice a wise mentor once gave me.
My life-long dream was to move to New York City for law school; but my older brother was battling cancer and I was a pillar of support in his life.
My mentor told me: "You can reverse most bad decisions. But you can NEVER reverse regret."
A lot of times we're afraid to make tough decisions because we are unable to - or don't have enough information to - know the right answer.
But the bigger point is: If you're already in that juncture in your life, it's because you had a burning question you needed to answer for yourself.
So, you don't need to know the right answer. But you MUST answer the question!
(In my case, I decided to move to New York City. My brother passed away before I even moved. "It just hit me that you are going to leave us soon," he wrote to me in his last email. "It is good. You got to go and become a man." I went, and became a man.)
YOU MUST ANSWER THE QUESTION!
