Stop trying to predict the future. You’ll ruin the surprise.

We have to make decisions every day. When to get up, what to eat, what colour pen to use. Whether we want to smile and nod yes at our boss or do something else less agreeable and not publishable. So if we’re having to make thousands of decisions every day, is it surprising that sometimes we can feel a little overwhelmed? We start to fret over the bigger ones, are we making the right choices, will it be the right thing to do. Lack of decision making can paralyse us. We become stuck in a limbo situation not able to move for fear of making the wrong choice. If you’ve been in this situation, you know how uncomfortable it can be.

So, how do we know what decision is the right one? There are two answers to this:

  1. We don’t know what the right decision is. Until we make it, it hasn’t happened yet.
  2. There is no wrong decision. Whatever one we make is the right one at the time we make it.

So, even if you’re still not sure, take a deep breath and choose. Be brave and choose from your heart. Whatever you decide, it will be fine.
