Optionality only provides value if it empowers you to make better choices.
You can’t choose the wrong direction if you stick to the harbor until the “perfect” moment. But neither will you get anywhere. And you’ll have no practical experience to fall back on if that perfect moment does arrive.
You can only make a course correction if you first set a course. Pick a spot on the horizon and sail into that wind. There’s treasure out there, if you can decide on what you value most.
