There are times when we would like to be doing something different to what we are doing: the company we keep, the job we do, the way we dress, the destinations we are heading for. There are also times when opportunities to change aspects of our lives beckon and temp us.
If we could look into the future, following opportunities to change our lives and habits would be easy but the future is a foreign place. We all know people who just leap onto new opportunities without so much as a glance back. Those of us who are merely mortal may think that following new opportunities may be difficult or risky.
If we are a bit risk-averse we can just change our lives incrementally so the impacts are subtle and low risk. Incremental change can add up to big outcomes and incremental change provides us with opportunities to change direction.
