The Advantages of Closing a Few Doors [nyt] (via capricornia)

Similar to my in it to win it versus hedging your bets argument.

Life is crazy loops this month.

Actually, I thought of "in it to win it" when I read that article...

Lately a lot of my decisions have been this odd calculus. A lot of the things I'm doing right now -- buying a house, moving in with my boyfriend, selling my place -- are scary if they don't work out and we're doing them in the order that makes us happy rather than someone else's. My mom called me one morning to ask me to just go ahead and marry my boyfriend at the courthouse so she wouldn't have to listen to my dad mutter about it. It's a little bit of hedging [no courthouse, just a property contract], but also a lot of closing doors [selling my place rather than trying to rent it out for a bit].

This is some good advice!
