All kidding aside, to be in this position (between a rock and a hard place) is not desirable because you are stuck between two bad options! Maneuverability is tough. One step in the wrong direction can be costly. What do you do when there appears to be no viable options? Decisions, decisions; you have to select – the best – of two undesirable outcomes. No one wants to choose “which poison to drink.” Thus, it is critical that we make the best choice that will provide a desirable course of action. Try to avoid the rock; try to avoid the hard place! Being in a safe zone (somewhere in between) is optimal.
Life happens. We have to remain on the alert, choose carefully, and analyze any and all situations. We cannot afford to let our guards down. We have to keep going even when the going gets tough! Photo credit: www.abekleinfeld.com
