Throughout my life, I’ve struggled with indecision. Big decisions, little decisions, it didn’t matter, I was still struck with the paralysis of choice. Did I want to pursue one opportunity over another? Was one more beneficial to me? What would I gain or lose? I’ve always been someone who not only thinks out decisions, but who thinks them out to an almost extreme extent. More than once, this tendency caused me to lose out on opportunities or wait until the last possible second to make a decision. How could I stop this?
The solution was simple, and really one that I should have realized sooner: Just make a choice.
Chances are when given two choices, you already know which side you are leaning towards, and which one is the right choice for you personally. Don’t let the paralysis of indecision cause you to lose out on opportunities, because sometimes, not making a choice IS making a choice, whether you like it or not.
Decisiveness is also a choice, take control of your decision-making, and choose to be decisive.
