You don’t have a choice

I recently picked up the book “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less” by Greg McKeown.

The first part really resonated with me so I wanted to share.

People often confuse choices with the ability to choose. ‘Choices’ are things/objects, they are finite and can be given or taken away. Whereas ‘choosing’ is an action and can’t be quantified or taken away.

You can choose not to make a choice, but by doing so you have chosen.
