You know what's worse than a shitty decision? Not making one. Waffling. As in, never fully committing to the decision. Leaving room for self-doubt...
Wait! Before you dismiss this as "ah I don't really do that, this one isn't for me" - you're wrong. You do it every day.
You know the feeling... just when you think you've made a decision, and you kinda put it away in your mind for the most part. But then someone says something in a roundabout way that makes you rethink your decision. Then you doubt. Then you're not sure what to do and you play both scenarios over and over in your mind. Exhausting.
Should I? Shouldn't I? Do I say it? Do I not? Should I do it? Should I not?
Sometimes you are just non-committal. Other times you are wrestling with two seemingly equally good (or bad) options. Either way the solution to this is the same.
Problems are rarely the issue - the issue is staying IN THE PROBLEM much longer than you need to. Doubting. Wondering. Stressing. Worrying. Waffling. Anxiety-ing.
The problem is simply needing you to MOVE THROUGH it. That's it. One step at a time. One decision at a time.
So that's what I'm asking you to do. ONE word. COMMIT.
Commit to making that decision. Make the damn decision and move to the next one. It's like a jumbo jet flying across the ocean. You get nearly limitless opportunities to course correct. And you'll land where you need to.
I guaran-damn-ty you that if you make the decision that you think is best for you, and FULLY commit to it (even if you're not certain - who's ever 100% certain) you will move forward and through the problem and indecision. To the next one.
Hope this helps.
