Here it is, the decision of a lifetime. It is right in front of you. It will be, by the time you have made it, the most important choice of your entire career. You are very good at what you do. You have spent more than two decades at the top of your profession. But you have but a blink to choose now. See, process, decide -- in less time than it took you to read those three words.
And you choose wrong.
So very wrong.
And the world immediately falls on your head before you have had time to drop it.
So cruel, baseball. Everything you've ever done can be erased in a hiccup, as Bill Buckner can tell you.
