Nobody's going to tell you that you're going the wrong way. It's all up to you. And if you don't pay attention, you're going to get lost.
That's what happened to me last night. Two trains on adjacent platforms were departing 3 minutes of each other, going to the same destination. However, one was the express and the other was local.
Hurried, I boarded track 29 instead of track 28. It was only when the 6:16 departed that I realized my mistake. Oops, wrong train!

No one knows where you're going in life, let alone yourself. Even when we think we're headed in the right direction we can blindly take the wrong one.
I felt lucky enough to be going in the right direction even though I arrived at my destination 20 minutes later.
It's easy to harp on a mistake. But you can take any bad situation and turn it around to make it better. My situation gave me a story and extra time to write the first draft of this post.
