One Question to Ask When Uncertain and How to Make Better Decisions
In the midst of challenging and confusing times anxiety has a way of taking over. Even in the best of circumstances navigating and making healthy decisions can become overwhelming.
There have been many scenarios and decisions that I have made and went looking for honest feedback and wisdom, but let’s be honest. Sometimes we are looking for feedback that aligns with the decision that you want to make or already silently made in your thinking.
Calling the wisest person you may personally know may be out of the question. Our loneliness and isolation that plagues many of our daily interactions limit our ability to have meaningful conversations. Or even the mentors and friends you have had along the journey because it seems many of us live busy lives that prevent us from taking time to call or proximity that the relationship is not what it used to be because of our frequent interactions.
What would it be worth to make difficult decisions based on the perspective of the wisest person you know? How much time and energy could you save by seeking counsel from the wisest person you know?
Who is the wisest person you know? What would they do in “this” circumstance or with “this” decision?
Try it. Next time you are faced with a perplexing problem or navigating a difficult decision reflect on the wisest person you may know and how they would respond.
