Fork in the road

How do you know if a new opportunity is the chance of a lifetime - or a trick?

You can't. You can only use your knowledge of the people involved, your assessment of the pros and cons, any weigh-in from people whose opinion you trust, and then cross your fingers and make a decision.

I've made moves that turned out to be jumps from the frying pan to the fire. I've made moves that turned out unexpectedly well. Right now, I'm so down on my current job, that I turned in my notice, without a safety net.

It's scary. It's not guaranteed.

But, daily, as a teacher, I see people who sold their souls for a guarantee, and are living to regret it.
