No one forces you to follow the dots. But they tell you exactly where you're meant to step next—that's just how life works here. To the store, to your daily routine, to your future spouse's arms, to finally get in shape. As teenagers, we naturally want to defy the dots, so we walk elsewhere—that’s fine! But we rarely gain anything since, again, our destiny is in the dots. And we stand to lose quite a bit—our future best friend, our next job, our very life. So nearly everyone ends up following the dots, and they're invariably happier for it.
