Never Miss a Workability Post


April 9, 2024

We all want to make the right decisions; that’s obvious.  But sometimes the way we approach decisions actually gets in the way.  Case and point, struggling over what the "right decision" is.  Agonizing about this is counterproductive.  Throughout our lives we will make good decisions and poor decisions.  We will act rashly sometimes and we will act too slowly at others.  It’s unlikely we’ll ever get the statistics of how many decisions were under-researched versus over-researched.  Regardless of the number of decisions you make, your ability to take reality and make it into what you want is where the rubber meets the road.  

When we get concerned about making the right decision, we pay too much attention to the "what ifs" and not enough time on the "what is."  This is a poor allocation of resources.  We think the idea of a "right decision" is a myth.  The ones that could have been, will never be.  But the ones right in front of you can become anything you want them to be.  

Hopefully that doesn’t sound too Pollyanna.  Every moment we are making a decision. Inaction is a decision.  Instead of worrying if the decision will be right, start directing the course in the direction you want it to go.  

We hope this helps with anxiety around making the right decision.  It is up to us to make the decisions that we make, the right ones.

To making what is, "right"
