SIT STILL AND STOP THINKING
Decision-making: Do you find it to be hard or easy? Does it depend on the topic?
Here's what I recently learned: If you're wanting to make a good decision, but you aren't sure what to do, the best thing to do is ask the question, find a calm quiet place, then sit down and sit still. Be quiet and try not to think at all.
Watch the grass grow. Sit and watch squirrels play. Go for a walk outside if you can. Putting yourself in a receptive frame of mind is the only way you can hear the answer above all the noise in your head.
Do not try to use this time to multi-task (you know who you are). This is not time for you to read a novel or write in your journal; save that for another time. Thinking, writing, reading, talking, listening to music, watching TV, or talking is multi-tasking. The only thing you want to do here is BE QUIET and listen. Listen to the silence, listen to the rustle of the trees, listen to the wind blow. This is the place you'll get your answer.
You won't be able to think your way to a good decision. If that were possible, you would have done it already, right?
