When in Doubt, Go for It

Today I made the worst possible decision.  I decided not to decide.  When you decide not to decide you lose your options.  Things are decided for you that may not be in your best interest.  I have found that when you are in doubt about something, the best course of action is to go for it.  If at a later time the decision to move forward turns out not to be the correct one, you can always make adjustments and get out of it.  If you decide not to decide, then you may lose the opportunity to make the decision to move forward and you will never know what good may have come out of it.

Sure your decision to not decide whether you should move forward may ultimately be the best one, but I am willing to bet that most of the time you will never know whether or not you should have done so.  This will only leave you with doubt and the lost opportunity will nag at you making you unhappy.   In other words you won’t be happy that you didn’t do it and it will bother you that you didn’t   That to me is a Lose – Lose proposition.

I am very angry at myself over my decision not to decide.  I am mostly angry because I know better.  I haven’t made this mistake in a long time, so I am going to relearn a lesson from it.  That lesson is NEVER EVER DECIDE NOT TO DECIDE!!!
