Problems grow out of your hesitancy–or out-right refusal–to make The Tough Decision. ~Dr. Robert Schuller

 

It’s hard to make tough decisions. The reason why it’s so tough and why it’s so hard is because it’s requiring you to step out of your comfort zone.

Maybe you need to step out in order to get specialized training. Perhaps you need to gather additional information and that requires talking to the type of people you’ve never interacted with before.  Or maybe it’s all new and just the thought of it pushes you way outside your comfort zone.

Break it down into teeny bite-sized pieces. Perhaps you can look at a website or make a phone call or get a relevant book out of the library.  Those are all doable.

But if those steps are too much, you can break them down into smaller chunks. For instance, perhaps you can’t work up the nerve to actually make the phone call and talk to someone, but you can at least look up the phone number.  Then after a little while, perhaps you can hold the phone in your hand as you look at the phone number.

By continually taking little steps like this you’ll gradually chip away at the tough decision. Soon it’ll be a thing of the past!

Keep moving forward!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
