Want to know a sure way to crash? Drive while never taking your eyes off the rear view mirror.
To put it another way – you can’t make choices in the past. “Playing the hand you’re dealt” doesn’t mean “accept everything that happens to you.” It means that you can only start not accepting it right now – not 5 years ago or 5 minutes ago. You can make infinite choices in the future and literally zero in the past.
Missed your exit? There will always be more, and you can make the active choice to take the next one. What you can’t do is go backwards and take the one you missed. Drive on the road you’re on.
