Welcome to Podcast 107 where thoughts revolve around Making Choices! (This content is not written out in its entirety. Kindly listen to the podcast and enjoy it!
Making good decisions is an ongoing process based on the information we have at any given time. We are all making choices constantly. Some less important than others! We teach our children at an early age and we often make choices under pressure. Today Linda addresses how to make informed choices.
The question becomes do we make them logically?
OR do we make them emotionally?
We make poor choices when we are rushed, upset, or confused. It is when we don’t have all the facts that we often make mistakes that play out in the long term.
When we have extremes it may be easier to say “yes” or “no”, or that something is “red or black.” When it comes to purchasing a car the decision may include more than the purchase price that makes the decision. We need to decide on the style, color, dealer, or other factors like interest costs.
Linda shares the example of how she watched a lady who had to return a package to Amazon. She had a small child with her who needed assistance. Also she shares a situation about returning a package to Walmart. So many things aren’t as easy as we’d like them to be! Returning products purchased online may be more work than going out to a store and buying them in person.
Vision and understanding our own values, and approach to dealing with life, calls us to balance our thinking with old and new content. We may need to clear out the clutter from our minds. It often begins with doing a physical action.
