“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.”
– H. Jackson Brown, Jr., American author

The quote above makes me think of the phrase “different strokes for different folks.” If we all thought the same things and liked the same things, we wouldn’t have so many choices in our world.
Consider the following list and notice your own preferences:
- Your favorite food
- Your favorite ice-cream
- Your favorite color
- Your favorite style of music
- Your favorite TV show
- Your favorite sport
- Your favorite type of vacation
- Your favorite hobby
- Your favorite way to spend the weekend
Go out of your way today to discover various roads that people in your professional and personal lives take toward their own fulfillment and happiness.
Perhaps you can take their example, choose your own path, and take the road less travelled by. It just may make all the difference. (You may also want to read Robert Frost’s Poem “The Road Not Taken.”)
