Topic: The Hardest Part Is Deciding
We’ve all made big decisions. If yours went anything like mine, they came with sleepless nights, back-and-forth-thinking, rationalizing both sides and trying to figure out what the “right” thing to do is.
If we’re being honest, making sure we don’t make the “wrong” decision is probably an even bigger motivator than making the “right” one.
We don’t like the idea of regrets. So often we believe that we’re going to find ourselves on the side of making a decision feeling worse than we do in the deciding. So we don’t decide… we kick the can down the road and sit in indecision.
Here’s a not-so-secret secret that you already know. Deciding is often the hardest part. And if we look back on most of the bigger decisions we’ve made, we always feel better once we decide.
And then our job shifts. It doesn’t serve us to use our energy to judge the decision we made. Instead, let’s pour our all into making our decision right.
