When you see a chance to get ahead today, you just have to take it! Save all of the deep and meaningful (and time consuming) contemplation for another time. You are in a phase of your life when you need proactive action, not passive reflection. Let yourself get comfortable with the idea that you can’t hit a home run every single time that you step up to bat. Aiming for a perfect score every time isn’t realistic, and you could be setting yourself up for disappointment.
