Right in context

Most of the toughest questions life asks of us have no right answers.

There may be an answer that works best within a certain context – given the environment, constraints and personalities involved. But, there are no cookie cutter solutions for the problems that matter. To figure out the best way forward in any situation, we need to honest with ourselves about the real problem we’re attempting to solve and thoughtfully wrestle with ourselves as we figure out our path. Not “the” path, “our” path.

The tragedy, then, is that we spend so much time attempting to be right that we forget that all that matters in the long run is that we be thoughtful instead.
