It’s actually quite easy, when faced with a choice – take the one you don’t want to do.
I don’t want to tell my wife she is right but it probably is the right choice.
I don’t want to bite my tongue when sitting in a meeting and a colleague is blurting out rubbish, but I probably should do.
This is the key to making successful decisions – you see the hard or undesirable choices are usually the right ones.
It is a skill that if you can learn, not only will you uncomplicate both your personal and professional lives but you will find that you are more relaxed and at peace with pretty much everything around you.
Don’t believe me? Try it.
Here’s a life example. When at a party you probably shouldn’t have that second (or maybe even first) piece of birthday cake. You want to but you shouldn’t.
When you sitting in traffic and an idiot cuts you off – you probably shouldn’t hit the horn. You want to – but if you don’t you don’t sit with the anger and negativity for minutes afterwards.
As humans we take the easiest and less painful choices – the long-term effects of these are usually not good.
So – from today – take the hard choice. Say no, say sorry and do less to achieve more as well as do more to achieve balance.
Have a good weekend and see you next week.
