    [Blog] Choices
    chose not to blog at [chrisbrogan.com]. also didn’t get my Blog Topics letter published. We make choices. Every day, we choose many times, from the moment we wake up, until the time we choose to fall asleep. What makes this interesting, however, are how many times we believe that we didn’t have a choice, and acted as if something was decided for us, including our reaction. Our Choices. Yesterday, I was sick with a head cold. These were choices. could have written enough posts and had some in draft so that I didn’t miss either publication, but I didn’t.
