On page 22 in the book, The Good Neighbor, Fred Rogers is quoted as saying the following:
“You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you need to make choices. And hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are.”
I love that quote. It’s not enough just to make a choice. The real challenge is to make sure the choice fits with your purpose, values, character strengths, passions, and talents.
In other words, your choice should come from who you are rather than what you think other people want you to do.
