Choices and impact | Juwon Ogungbe

Whenever I’m awake, I have to make choices. Every time I do so, a sequence of events is set in motion.

I can only select, based on my state of being aware and prepared. There are moments when I am not fully equipped with the data I need, for hitting the spot and doing the right thing.

As long as I am willing to take responsibility for my actions, I can do my utmost to rectify situations where I made mistakes.

Intelligence and wisdom often overlap in a person’s psyche. These traits are not exactly the same, however.

One can aim to act with honourable intentions. Everything else is negotiable.
