The plane lifts from the ground and you’re off. Wherever your destination
, when you are on that plane and the doors are closed there’s little to no going back. How many times have you felt this way in life decisions?
Decisions can be so hard! And they seem to gradually become more difficult as life moves forward. Some people seem better at making quick decisions while others are better at making calculated decisions. I tend to be good with the quick decisions. However, recently I’ve noticed a strange habit in myself. I either make a quick decision or none at all. The intricacies of a decision or a life choice stress me out and I’d rather not think about the details and just make the leap.
With decisions in everyday life I have a hard time picking things like where to eat or where to shop
, because, quite honestly, they just don’t matter so much to me. Do you ever feel like we have too many options? An overload on choices? I have made a bad habit of just not deciding. If a situation includes another person I’ll let them decide or if the decision is on me I find myself procrastinating on making a plan until the last minute.
This is what I call choice overload. Many times people who are creatives struggle with this because they welcome novelty, options, freedom to decide, and creativity. Have you struggled with choice overload?
Here are a few things that have helped me:
- Place habits in your life. Like every Tuesday night go to the same restaurant. Each morning enjoy a certain tea.
- Learn from the people in your life who are more intentional and structured. They may make decisions carefully and confidently while maybe you subconsciously do not trust yourself to make big decisions.
- Take a breath and slow down when a decision needs to be made quickly. This will help you trust in your ability to make a great decision and consider what you value—what is important in that moment.
- Big or small, always ask at least one person in your life what they think. When it’s a big decision you can always ask someone older and wiser for their insight and guidance. Remember you don’t have to take their advice, you might just learn from their experience. If it’s a smaller decision and others are involved be sure to hear from those who will be affected.
The plane has landed and you are safely on the ground in another space. Moving forward in life with confidence is the best feeling. Others will notice and you will gain respect for yourself. Ok gotta go. My plane just landed in Rochester New York
