My two cents: Staying on schedule is always at odds with personal discovery. But those discoveries of our early years follow us through life, catching our attention when we least expect it. These moments of discovery are the road maps to ourselves. They are the preferences that weave us into the beings we become and continue to shape our personal evolutions. Next time something stops you dead in your tracks, take it in, behold it, adore it because it is glorious and it was meant for you. If it is a pair of shoes, and they are under $100, trust me on this... buy them!
