A lot of people tend to say “I have no choice.” I’ll use the example of students because at my age, the majority of people I interact with are students. I can’t count how many times my friends have complained about school being boring or a waste of time, etc, but said they’re staying in school because they “have no choice”.

Chris Brogan put it quite well in his post on choices.

Remember this: you control your choices. The phrase “I had no choice,” means simply that you have chosen the action that was most compelling, for whatever circumstances surround it. You and all humans choose every day, thousands of times a day.

You always have a choice. It’s only a matter of whether you’re willing to take a gamble on a risky choice.

What choices are you making today?
