David Russell said, “The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn.”

Close for eyes for a sec and imagine a landscape full of bridges you have crossed and bridges you have burnt. If you have burnt a lot of bridges your landscape might look like a War of the World’s like disaster area and if you have burnt a few, green pastures with nice bridges and the odd dangerous one burnt and rotting away.

My thought is that if you can visualise the path the bridge would take you down, actually walk over it, it might make it easier to know which to cross and which to burn. Plus you get to work your imagination, something we don’t always do. It will definitely bring a whole new dimension to your decision making.
