Stay on track…don’t stymie

When you come to a point on the tracks of life, don’t stymie. Rationally think things through, and then go with your “gut” feeling. Once you make a decision on which path to take, GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT!

verb;
1. To hinder, block, or thwart.
noun:
1. Golf. (On a putting green) an instance of a ball’s lying on a direct line between the cup and the ball of an opponent about to putt.
