The coming week will provide many individuals, young and old, with the opportunity to increase their knowledge of a wide range of topics -- dictated only by personal taste and interest, and the innate drive to learn. All manner of portals shall open, some for only a short time, leading to discoveries -- personal, professional or merely avocational -- that can lead the way to dramatic change, even transforming one's entire life. The difficulty may simply be in choosing which way one wishes to go, for that will determine the ultimate outcome -- not desire, not will, not skill, not temperament or personality, but the decision itself will make the biggest difference. The mere choice of which piece of knowledge to pursue shall be the be-all and the end-all.
Some may find that the professional and the personal are inextricably conjoined, and the decisions made about one aspect of daily life will surely inform those made about the other. In some cases, a professional reunion can lead to a personal revelation that effectively changes everything. This is not to be feared!
