Decisions, Decisions

I’m one of the most indecisive people that I’ve ever met! I don’t know why it’s so hard for me to make a decision, but it’s something that I really need to work on this year.  I feel like I can make some decisions quickly, but others take much more time for me to decide on, and even then I may go back and forth.

I’m curious to know how do you all make decisions? If you find this struggle to be present in your own life let me know.

I feel like one of the reasons that I get so paralyzed when it’s time for me to make a decision is because I hate making mistakes! I always feel like if I make the wrong choice something bad might happen to me. Another reason why I feel like it’s so hard for me to make a decision is because I fear that I might miss out on a better option! Even after I make a selection I always wonder what would have happened if I chose differently.

One thing that I have mentioned here on my blog before, is my constant tug of war with satisfaction and the desire to see what’s next. I’m constantly looking forward to the next thing, or anticipating the joy that comes with tomorrow.  Perhaps there is a link between my indecisive tendencies and my touch of destination disease. Maybe I should work to strike the proper balance between enjoying where I am in life and looking forward to the future.

  1. I’m a maverick when it comes to decision making. I try to use biblical principles and something I’ve learned In my military career called OODA. It stands for:

    Observe- the collection of data by means of the senses

    Orient- the analysis and synthesis of data to form one’s current mental perspective.

    Decide- the determination of a course of action based on one’s current mental perspective.

    Act- the physical playing-out of decisions.

    When you have a decision to make try to stop and break down the relevant information in those categories. When you do that you notice all the irrevelant things kind fade to the back and then you can make a clear decision.

    Or biblically,

    Luke 11:28
