I’ve been hyper-focused making decisions.
From taking inventory of my current decisions to making better decisions for the future, I’ve been doing my best to become more mindful.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed something about myself that probably applies to many others:
I procrastinate with some decisions and immediately take action on others.
Can you guess which ones are which?
It’s probably pretty obvious - I tend to put off larger decisions that have long-term results and take action on those that are relatively easy and have immediate impact.
For example, I’ve set a goal to open a high-interest, online savings account in order to start a new emergency fund. This was almost a month ago.
Why haven’t I followed through yet?
Probably for the same reason most people use - I’m afraid of making the “wrong” choice.
It’s easy to forget that, in the grand scheme of things, indecision is still a decision. In fact, it’s the worst decision you can make because you aren’t owning the outcome.
Like most things, it’s a matter of simply making a decision and, if needed, tweaking it later.
Once you make one major decision, the momentum carries over to the next and, before you know it, each one becomes a little easier.
