How simple it was to be shepherded - by parents, by teachers, and to follow a fixed pattern every year. how simple it was to be in school or college, to be told what you have to do and when.. Some years later, you're out of college, on your own, doing things which impact your career, your life. Not just how well you do things, what decisions you make at what time, matter a lot. Sick of mediocrity, wary in big moves, taking every step with caution you're not sure what's in store for you next.
You have millions of options. Perhaps, that is the most frightening part of it. Battered, desperate and having no one to guide you, you feel - how simple it is to be shepherded.
