In my book “The Art of Starting Over” step 29 of the 30 day program is Making Good Decisions. When you make a decision to do something you are giving your life direction. The decisions you make or don’t make are the actions that shape your life. When you decide not to make a decision and just let things happen, you are still shaping your life. The act of not making a decision is a decision. It is a lazy one but a decision non-the-less and you are leaving yourself open for failure. The question you have to ask yourself is “where is this decision likely to lead”? Sure sometime you feel like you have to react before you have time to think but try not to. When you feel your emotions are high try to wait until they have calmed down and come back to the decision when you are more logical. You will be able to answer the question wisely and realistically. Think about the consequences or your actions and add in the consequences of the consequences. (If you need help doing this, leave a comment and I will email you to set up a consultation.) When you make sound decisions you make life better for yourself and those around you. Don’t be hard on yourself. Do the best with what you have. Make the best decisions you can. When you learn better you can do better. Start by asking yourself where is this decision likely to lead and answer honestly. Knowing what you’re getting yourself into…Now That’s Presidential!
