Life is just full of decisions.
Thankfully, most decisions in life are small and of little consequence. Examples? Should I buy a new pair of jeans? Should I have pizza or a salad for lunch? These could be considered decisions. There is little to no cost for being wrong. Nobody needs to be consulted before we decide. We should remind ourselves: “don’t sweat the small stuff.”
Then there are those that are large and require careful consideration. Should I accept a job offer that requires a move to another city? Should I file for a divorce?
These big decisions are difficult? It takes time, thought and emotional strength to decide and to take action. The outcome (if we do it or don’t) is uncertain. What if things don’t work out? Will I be happy with my choice? Are others likely to be hurt by my decision? It is wise to take your time on these big decisions as long as you don’t take forever. After all, there are few things in life that are certain. Avoiding making decisions is no way to live your life.
Personal note: In my long life many of the big decisions I have made have worked out well. Others? Not so much. But I made decisions along the way and learned lessons from them. Please, do the same for yourself.
