Whatever the day brings, we all make choices. We make choices for things mundane and, sometimes, momentous. We make choices regarding what we eat, whom we associate with and what activities we choose to pursue. We make choices for how we will spend out time, and while the choices themselves may not be critical, acknowledging the fact that we make choices is.
The man of substance takes responsibility for choices, and not just the choices themselves but the overall act of choosing. He recognizes that he will sometimes make poor choices, th at he will try to learn from them, and that he will endeavor to make more wise choices than unwise ones. But, regardless if the rest, he will take responsibility for the act of choosing.
