how to make a decision

Anyone who has ever dined out with me knows that when it comes to deciding what I want to eat, it's intense:


Do I have the scallops or the steak?

What if the scallops are too salty?

What if it’s not what I expected?

What is everyone else ordering?


Difficulty making decisions is not only something I have experienced since I was a kid BUT it is something that pretty much EVERY Non-Nine-to-Fiver experiences.


Making decisions can lead to "analysis paralysis."


This is a state of being when you are analyzing and analyzing and analyzing and most likely asking question after question after question to the point of being frozen.

Do I call now or do I call later?


Maybe it’s too late in the day and they are eating dinner?


Is tomorrow better?


Should I sound excited when I call, or should I sound cool and collected?


What if I say the wrong thing?


What if they say NO?


So what’s the solution to making difficult decisions? Or ANY decision at all?


The best way to make a decision and forgo paralysis is to make A decision. We need to make A decision to make any kind of movement.


And, the key is to trust yourself AND your gut. See if you can release the fear, release the worry of making a bad decision, take a few deep breaths and trust that the direction your gut is pointing you in is the direction you are meant to go.


If you know there is no more time to waste analyzing and feeling paralyzed and you are making little to zero movement with your Non-Nine-to-Five purpose then fill out your application to connect directly with me and see which of The Non-Nine-to-Five Programs is a match for you.


Sending you trusting-decision-making energy,

PS: If the decision you make ends up being less than favorable, well than you learned what not to do next time and you can put it in your pocket as a beautiful learning lesson for growth.
