It’s Time To Decide
You’ve heard it said, not making a decision is a decision, and you’re going to have to live with the consequences of NOT deciding, if you don’t decide.
Decisions are difficult sometimes, but the cost of not making them can be even more difficult to deal with.
You know what I’m talking about; The boy who couldn’t decide which girl he liked better, then lost both.
If you’re having trouble making a decision, you’re in the right place.
I’ve had my own troubles making decisions, and something happened yesterday that motivated me to move a long with making decisions.
Last night an affiliate account, I’d put a lot of time and energy into, was cancelled because the website that I had associated it with didn’t have enough content on it.
This was a direct result of long term indecision…
I’ve know for sometime that I’ve been trying to run to many websites, Youtube Channels, and businesses; and that I needed to let go of some things in order to do some things great.
But NO… I stubbornly kept trying to do what I was doing, because I didn’t want to let anything go. Basically I didn’t decide, and that’s why I lost the affiliate account. I didn’t have enough time to make the website associated with it great, so a decision was made for me.
So now you know one Good Reason WHY you should make a decision, but the bigger question might be…
Why are YOU having a tough time deciding to begin with?
Experience tells me, it good be a lack of purpose in your life.
Getting a more clear Vision helps put tougher decisions into perspective. There’s a book called The One Thing, and the basic principle of the book has helped me a little.
“What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?” Gary Keller, The One Thing
Some people like the idea of making a pros and cons list, and that might be a little helpful, but it’s also a good way to mull over what’s the better choice longer and longer.
Over analyzing our options can lead to pure frustration, and for whatever reason, logic doesn’t always yield the best decision.
What do you really want to do deep down in your soul?
Sometimes the question above is enough to help you decide and move on. Other times, the consequences to your decision may be more serious, and you know what you want to do, but the consequences of doing what you want to do are irresponsible on some level.
In that case, it’s more difficult, and getting a clearer vision of where you want to go in your life is probably going to be your best bet in helping you decide.
I want to leave you with this. I know decisions are serious sometimes, but try not to take yourself so serious. Take some meditative deep breaths, and allow yourself to see the humor of your own predicament.
Then… make a decision and move on. There’s a lot more decisions waiting to be made.
Let me know if this helped you to decide in the comments section, and thank you for reading.
