“Maximizing optionality” - the state of enjoying possibilities without being on the hook to do anything - is a key reason young people give when going for big school or employer.
Like lottery ticket buyers, the people pursuing optionality postpone their dreams and undertake choices that they think will enable their dreams.
The shortest distance between two points is reliably a straight line. If your dreams are apparent to you, pursue them. Creating optionality and buying lottery tickets are not way stations on the road to pursuing your dreamy outcomes.
