Life is a series of decisions. You decide on your career path, your school, your job, your first client and your next. This morning you decided which suit to wear, what to eat for breakfast, and what time to leave for work.
You decided which file to work on first, which message to return first, and what to work on after that.
Most of the decisions you make are not very important or difficult to make. Some are critically important and gut wrenching.
But everything is a decision. Letting a boss, a parent, or a spouse decide for you is a decision. Leaving your fate to God is a decision. Not making a decision is a decision.
Things will happen that you couldn’t have anticipated. But when they do, you decide how to respond.
It’s your life and you get to decide what happens next. As someone put it, “Don’t wonder what will happen next, decide what happens next”.
Don’t let the immensity of your power overwhelm you. You don’t need to plan out the rest of your life or even the rest of the year. You only need to decide what’s next.
When you’re done reading this, what will you do?
