The Wall Street Journal published this powerful discussion today on the concept of bridge burning. I find that this comes up often in discussions about tax debt. Decisive life-altering changes often require decisions that are final, with little chance of ever going back. That might mean walking away from a home, car, business, investment or even a marriage. It’s serious stuff. But without real change, we are often stuck in a pattern of suffering.
These bold decisions are empowering and open doors to new possibilities free from the burdens of the past. Even when we can we see that, change can be enormously difficult.
