daily inspiration: making decisions

Posted on: March 15, 2011

Yes, there are whole schools of thought and web sites and books around the decision-making process. But here’s one oft-overlooked tip that’s helpful:

Your mind is not your friend.

What?? Thats right. Your mind can run in circles. If you have weighed the pros and cons, tried other mental sorts of exercises, and still don’t know, chances are that it won’t get you there.

Action: When you need to make a decision, listen to your body. Think about one option for a while, and monitor your body’s reaction; then try the other. If you feel light and open, it’s probably good. If tense, maybe not so much.
