Some people just hate having choices because it makes them responsible for their results and they want to be able to blame everything else other than themselves if it goes wrong. Nobody wants egg on their face.
That's why long term stable positions are sought after and held close when they are obtained. It doesn't matter if it is interesting, challenging, brings out our best, as long as it is stable.
What they fail to realize is that just because they make no choices does not mean that they aren't making a choice. We know everything changes some slowly and some instantly but all things change. When we don't make a conscious choice then we allow everyone else to make that choice for us.
There is no such thing as standing on the sidelines in life as a spectator. If we live we are participants. There is no risk free path for us to take. There is no refuge from life where we can take a time out.
We might say that not making a choice is an illusion. Choices are made either with our participation or without. Life does not give a choice in participating so don't blame life when we are not going in the direction we want to go. Exercise the power of choice or the choice will be made for us.
