There’s a saying about staring at a closed door for so long, you don’t notice that other doors have opened.
How about staring really long at a door that opened because you didn’t expect what was behind it? How do you decide if you should walk through?
It comes down to this – do you think it is worth the risk? What you can gain, for what you might lose. There are no guarantees on either end. The one thing you should be able to say is – I made the best decision I could at the time. Nothing more, nothing less.
