I’m facing some major changes in my life right now (the first one to make a puberty joke gets something thrown at them). There are some decisions that need to be made soon, and the wife and I have spent a lot of time agonizing over them.

Of course, nothing we decide will turn out how we expect anyway. But making decisions gives humans a pleasant (if false) sense of control, and so we follow the ancient forms.

While there are a lot of things I’d like to improve regarding my current situation, it represents a known quantity. I’ve adjusted to it. It’s comfortable.

The future makes no such guarantee. But stepping outside one’s comfort zone does come with some benefits. I’ve made this helpful graph to remind myself of them. I figured I’d post it here in case anyone else found it useful.
