To be stuck in the middle, between decisions, can be killer. There’s nothing worse–it seems–than not being on a planned track.
You want to find that perfect, planned track…the road you were meant to be on.
Are you facing a decision in your life… worklife or otherwise? There are more people than you might realize who are.
Decisions can be viewed like this: You are standing in a train
station. There are many trains leaving in all different directions. Once
you board one of those trains, you cannot turn around. You have to be
armed with as much information as possible about the destination before you get there, before stepping onto the train. Such is the path of life.
We can look back at all the forks-in-the-road in our life now with
clarity. After all, hindsight is 20/20. But wouldn’t it be nice to be
able to have the same view on our future decisions? Unfortunately, it
doesn’t work this way.
So what to do? The next best thing, which is look at all the given
options, analyze best as possible, and then make the decision. Don’t
Study what is available to you on this end of “the fork”, talk to people who have been in your shoes, then go.
Don’t be stuck in a position of indecision for weeks, months, and yes–even years. Ever heard of paralysis by analysis? Don’t wind up there.
(By the way…to not decide is to make a decision anyway. So choose already.)
Let’s make this an awesome Monday!
