suppose it's rather easy to feel that our decisions aren't
all that important. Some of them, after all, are
quite minor and don't really have much of an effect on our
lives or the lives of other people. Or so we
think. Perhaps the fact is just that the minor ones
are easier to make, so we don't think so much about our
commitment to those particular decisions.
if our hearts aren't into our decisions, then just what do
those decisions mean? If our beings aren't tied into
the decisions that we make, then how can our actions
provide us with the satisfaction that they provide us with
when we are truly committed to our decisions?
decisions with the entirety of our being doesn't
necessarily mean that they're written in stone, and
perhaps that's why many people aren't willing to put
everything into every decision they make. Perhaps
they're afraid of doing something permanent that can't be
undone even if it turns out to be a mistake. But
changing a mistaken decision is as simple as putting our
whole hearts behind a new decision.
is one of the most important skills we can develop if we
want to be happy. Being confident in our decisions
and making them based on what we truly feel to be true and
important is the only way to make decisions that we not
only can live with, but can thrive and prosper as a result
of their making. Unfortunately, we learn to make
decisions off the cuff, and we learn to belittle the
significance of many of the decisions we make each
day. It's time to unlearn the learning that
trivializes decision-making, and make the process one of
the most important parts of our lives.
