From an older woman I worked with at Fort Sanders Hospital years ago:

"When you come to a crossroads in life and you can't decide which path to take, stay where you are until you're sure which direction to take."

This advice has helped me numerous times, but it's also left me sitting on the fence for quite a while, too.

Make sure to answer your e-mails. If someone has taken the time to write to you personally, respond, even if it's just an acknowledgment.

Follow your own instincts; don't follow the advice of the so-called "experts" just because someone wrote a book.

Live life with no regrets.

As with many people, I regret the things I didn't do more than I regret the things I've done.

right after i graduated from high school i was advised to go to california to visit my aunt. so i boarded a greyhound and rode the bus fro 3 days from Pa to Cali. that was 27 years ago. everytime i go back home i am reminded how glad that i, for once, listened to advice.

"Twenty Years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do then by the ones you did do".

This is an abbreviated quote by Mark Twain that changed my life when I was feeling indecisive.

I don't remember the exact quote but it was something like, People won't remember what you said or did they will remember how you made them feel.
