I have been thinking about my life today, as I am wont to do. Having realized my own mortality a couple of years ago, I am now faced with the decision of what to do with my life.
A person lives only so briefly and the world offers infinite variety. It is a sad thing that we cannot do it all, experience it all. Choices must be made, and every choice closes new doors, and opens others.
Starting three years ago, and for the next two years, I will be making choices that will affect the rest of my life more than any other. The next year especially I will have to make a choice. Academia or business?
