One of my readers, recently commented privately to me, that "sometimes you need to open the door when you hit the wall".
the Door" means looking out at new options and opportunities. It can
also mean taking a look outside for awhile and then deciding to step
back to where you feel comfortable and at home. Sometimes it is nothing
ventured, nothing gained. Then again, it can be a useful exercise to
review and analyze where you are now.

This is a best of post from 2010.
