We get ourselves all jumbled up and discombobulated because we’re hesitant to make a decision.
Here’s something to consider: We won’t know if our decision is a good one or not. We need the perspective of time to determine this.
I’m sure you’re like me and you’ve had the experience where you’ve made a decision and it turned out well in the short term but over the long haul, it wasn’t the best decision. But then after more time has passed, perhaps several years, it turns out that the original decision was a good one after all!
Over time, the results of decisions can change because they’re like ripples on the surface of a pond when we drop a rock into it–the effects of our decisions go on and on throughout our whole lives. Usually, they’re like tiny particles moving through our lives and they combine with other decisions, which causes them to modify each other.
So, don’t let the fretting over making decisions keep you from making them. Do your homework and your due diligence and then make the best decision that you can in that moment.
Then move on.
As you keep taking steps, your new decisions will tweak and modify your previous ones. So no worries if you come across new information. You can always make another decision!
It’s all good and it all works out.
Make that decision and take the next step!
You can do it, I am supremely confident in you!
