The power of decision making 2

Your ability to make choices will define who and what you will become.

This is a daunting thought – What to eat for breakfast, wear to work, to tell or not tell your boss, whether to go back to school, what schools to consider, what job to take, who to marry, where to live? So many decisions to make that will define us whether we acknowledge them thoughtfully or not. Given the importance of decision making there should be classes for how to make decisions; Decision Making 101, 201 etc.

Here’s the conundrum. Choice in theory is good. It allows us to decide what is best for us as individuals. The problem is that it’s also paralyzing. Too much choice creates indecision and indecision stifles action; action that often needs to occur to propel us forward.
