last chance; decisive moment; crossroads;

the point of no return.

Our boat crossed the Rubicon. We had enough gas to reach the island. We did not have enough gas to return to the mainland.

Memory trick
rub icon
we rub the icon before we click.
once we click it... we cannot undo it.

At work:
We crossed the Rubicon a year ago. We cannot cancel the project because we have too much invested in it.
