Did you know that the average working adult makes about 12 decisions before 9:00 am.?
Life is a matter of choices. We are making choices every day at every single step. Right from the time we wake up, to the time we hit the sack at night.
Some of these choices are so routine that we don’t even stop to think about the choice we make. For example, the choice of what we eat and what we wear, the route we take work, and so on.
When we have fewer choices to make, decision making takes up less of our time. Sometimes choices can be life-changing, and the choice we make can leave us with more meaningful learning experiences.
Life is not always easy. There will be moments in life when decision-making is tough. Many times the idea of the unknown and what lies ahead in our lives paralyses us because we cannot see it.
The Power of Choice
My top suggestions when making choices:
- Remind yourself of your priority, goal, and the future impact of the outcome while choosing or deciding.
- Never allow emotions to control your decisions.
- Consider as many alternatives as you can come up with to make an informed choice.
- Pray pray and pray! God knows best!
And as John Maxwell says:
“Life is a matter of choices, and every choice you make makes you.”
Don’t forget to keep it simple and make it beautiful.
