I spent the entire weekend watching YouTube videos and contemplating what was in the future for me. Honestly, I believe that this a place many of us can find ourselves during this trying time. Not only does being in quarantine give us all a lot more time to think about such things.
The problem is, that is pretty much my state of being always. I constantly stay in a state of flux. I know there are decisions to be made, but I don’t make them. Instead, I sit and try to come up with the perfect answer. The one that is the correct one and everything will just work out great.
As most of you could already guess, there simply isn’t no such thing as that. There are no correct answers. There are none that will just make everything work out perfectly. There are no guarantees in life.
By remaining in a state of non-movement, then I don’t make a wrong decision, or do I? By the sheer fact that I don’t do anything at all, that is the wrong decision. No other option is wrong or bad. The only one is by doing nothing at all and remaining stagnant.
If I learn to be more decisive and to really move on the decisions that I make, rather they work out or not, will be a lesson learned not a failure. I will still be making progress toward my goals and dreams, even if the path is rocky along the way. I can also guarantee, that I will get a helluva lot more done by doing so.
We can spend all this time sitting and contemplating the right decision and looking at all of the facts, but so much time is wasted. If you decide on one thing and pursue that, you will make far more progress on knowing if it is the right decision or not. If it doesn’t work out, learn from it, and move on. End of story.
Don’t reprimand yourself. Don’t judge. Don’t beat yourself up. Learn and move on.
Period. End of sentence. It is like Gary Vee speaks about in his YouTube content found here. You aren’t always going to make a perfect decision. There are none. Follow your instinct and some will work out, and some won’t, but the fact you can move a helluva lot faster doing such means you’ll be able to fit more decisions in a day. So where one may not work out, three others you decided on may work.
If you haven’t checked out any of his videos, I highly recommend them. He shares a lot of free content to really help you succeed.
Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
