know many people who could stand to hear--and take to
heart--this piece of advice. Many people seem to
find themselves "stuck" in certain places, jobs,

how honorable our intentions. What helps to

decide to do once we find out that we're on a wrong
road. In those decisions we'll see our lives being
constructed, refined, and improved.
