Unless we constantly work through the implications of some of our decisions, we will end up making the wrong ones.
I spent a lot of my early years observing, so by the time I got to be the adult I had a clearer understanding of how to go about my life, even though I hadn’t personally made any decisions. There will always be consequences for every decision we make. That should always be our reference point.
Unfortunately, when we go on to make bad decisions, there is usually a ripple effect that involves other people, therefore we should weigh up the pros and cons on the decisions we make before making a final decision. It’s always harder to go back in when a bad decision has been made, than it is to take time to make the right decision in the first place.
When we fail to work through the process and that is what it is; when we make decisions without first working through the process, we will end up with decisions we’re often not prepared for. I know that when I come to look at the whole picture, making the right decision for me is child’s play.
