I have trouble making decisions. What do I do?
I find indecision to be one of the most frustrating things that I can experience. If you are not careful, you will just pick and choose because of the pressure of the moment.
Most of the time, indecision comes because you have not thought a situation through. The greatest cure for indecision is getting alone in a quiet place and listening to your heart. And next to that would be to seek the counsel from someone you trust.
Practice making decisions by asking your self questions:
- What happens if I don't do this?
- Which situation will have the greatest impact?
- What do I like the most?
- What would my mentor do?
One final thought. When it comes to the welfare of the people around you, take time to work through your decisions. Don't let pressure force you into being impetuous. It is better to suffer the consequences for a short time of a late decision than dealing with the regret of a hasty, wrong decision. Once you have made your decision, be firm with it. This is a very important test of your life and leadership.
