“Why can’t I decide?”
Sound familiar? Is this you?
We make hundreds of decisions each day—big ones, small ones—and many occur outside of our awareness. How many of you actually plan to blink your eyes or smile at someone you recognize? Or scratch your head? Or even place one foot in front of the other as you navigate
your way to where you are going? Yet, too often we learn to become choice-phobic. We just can’t seem to decide! And the only thing we know for certain is that we are not sure. This is true whether it’s about something as simple as what to order for dinner, or about matters that contain larger contingencies and affect others such as what car to buy, or whether or not to seek new employment, or, having done so, whether or not to accept a job that was offered.
