I know a man who worked sunup to sunset taking only one week every year to achieve his goal of owning his own bar on St John in the USVI. I know because he bartended for me in my restaurant. He would work his own shifts and any others he could pick up from other people who decided on Sunday they'd rather be at the beach than behind the bar. He made a decision that he was going to forgo pleasures of life (for right now) and instead place every once of available energy into reaching his goal. After 9 long years of hard work and sacrifice that grayed his hair in the process, he not only got married to a wonderful new bride but he finally realized his lifelong dream. He partnered in on a bar called Quit Mon, after John Wayne in the Movie. He enjoyed his dream for almost a full year. After celebrating his one year marriage anniversary he went to bed and never woke up. Died of a massive heart attack. His new wife inherited his share of the bar, married a much younger man and is now having the time of HER life.
A student asked him "Sir...should I enter college or go into the military?"
He responded..."It doesn't matter - Just pick one."
Otherwise life will run over you.
You will be roadkill before you realize what happened.
Truck is coming. Rabbit is in the middle of a crossroads and has a difficult choice to make.
But rabbit cannot decide. First faints left and then faints right ....so undecided.
The truck runs him over.

Don't know where you live or how far you are willing to travel, but if you go to Odessa Texas you will make 6 digits and have a job in days in the oil field. If you get a CDL truck drivers are making $45 an hour and working 80+ hours a week. They are in the middle of an oil boom. It will end in 3-5 years but for now the money is insane. Practically no unemployment. Odessa is not pretty or exciting, but it's money and a lot of it.
