Opportunities only come once…
And…we often hem and haw so long about making a decision that we reach a complete stand still.
But, sometimes, it’s not easy to know which is the right choice until it’s already picked…lived and experienced.
Here’s how I do that:
1. Take my time listing pros and cons of any big decision
2. Make only the types of decisions which resonate with my own personal goals/values
3. Do my homework before jumping in (or out) of something
4. Not be a people pleaser
5. Take my time making big decisions; and only after 1-4 has been considered, which will generally not
be done quickly.
6. Promise myself that I will not beat myself up over it if it goes South….(or blame someone else) but
just accept it, learn from it, make the best of it, move on and make a better decision next time.
(And, maybe double check to see if I have applied 1-5 this time around.)
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” (Mark Twain)
