Making choices and decisions can be difficult and many of us are in the process of trying to decide on many different topics throughout our day. We are trying to prioritize what needs to be done and the best way of doing those particular things. Our choices and decisions are ongoing. We are continually making choices and decisions from the time we are small. Today on Mini Miracles from Minor Moments the idea of how to proceed may be helpful for you. Often it the smallest thing that ignites your fire and allows you to elevate your income, the relationships you relish, and the feeling of being accomplished.
Time Changes our Perspective
As we age we make many choices. Choices of exercising or activities that move us ahead. Choices of who to spend time with or choices of when to travel or how we plan a trip. In today’s world, people are making the choice of whether they want the vaccine. One starts looking at the pros and cons. You may be making choices of eating to build a better immune system. Perhaps selecting types of exercise that will be good for you.
Free Up Your Mind
Decisions take on a number of important factors. Just like a computer, our mind needs to be freed up to make wise choices. The best results come from knowing the right path to take. Sometimes we are worried about making the wrong decision and as a result, we let good opportunities pass us by. Indecision and confusion deplete us of energy that could be used to keep us mentally healthy.
The Illustration of Getting a Dog
Linda illustrates how to make choices by telling us a story about her decision to purchase a dog. She asked herself many questions, some may help you come up with questions to ask yourself if you need to look at when you have a decision about jobs, commitments, vacations, or even important things like having surgery.
Are you deciding on going back to school? Are you trying to change your financial situation? Perhaps you need to move to a different size home or help fund a family member?
Steps to Help You Move Ahead
Decisions are not always easy, but here are a few ideas on how one can actually make good decisions. Our choices boil down to a few specific things :1- visualize the destination of your actions and how you can control the outcome, 2- Look at the opportunities available now, 3- What choices are there? 4- Next create habits that are simple, easily repeated, and time focused —even designate a good time to think things through —it may be while taking a walk or getting alone and sitting away from confusion. 5- Put yourself among like-minded people who share your values and commitments—get their feedback. 6- Use humor when things seem too hard to decide.
