Do You Regret Not Starting a Freelance Writing Career?

My 13-year old nephew graduated from middle school today. He's officially a 9th grader! Yeah -- I'm such a proud aunt. :-) So, what does this have to do with the question posed?

Freelance Writing Seminar: Employers tell exactly what they're looking for in freelancers -- and more! Get the details here.
Well, the commencement speaker was a minister and the title of his address to the young graduates was, "Life is a Series of Choices." This got me to thinking about the choices we as adults make -- and how many we would do over if we could -- or, make different choices.

While the speech wasn't profound -- as in groundbreaking -- it did shine a light on what I think many of us already know. We choose what our lives become because every choice we make has a consequence that leads to a series of other choices. Even inaction is an choice. How? The very act of not deciding is a decision -- to, in essence, leave to chance what happens.

For example, say you've always wanted to be a freelance writer. But, you choose to do other things with your time. Eg, work for years at a job that is not satisfying, veg out in front of the TV instead of taking a seminar, work on the book inside your head, learn how to market for clients, etc.

Every choice you make leads you closer to your dream, or farther away from it. I'd even expand upon the minister's speech by saying, Life is a series of choices -- and how you spend your time reflects the progress (or lack of it) you choose to make in life.

So, make your choices -- and spend your time -- wisely. For, as you get older, you will clearly be able to see what choice led to what turn that got you where you are presently. Make choices that lead you where you want to be.

To my American counterparts, enjoy the holiday upon us (Memorial Day).
