You’re waffling again. Too many options. Not enough clarity. How can you get clear and get a move on?
Why you wafflle.
First of all, because making decisions is difficult. If anyone tells you life is easy, they’re either pretending or delusional. Life presents you with possibilities and limitations, and leaves it up to you to choose between the two.
So let’s not pretend that choosing is easy.
How to enjoy your waffles.
All that said, some people are better at choosing than others. And chances are pretty good that if you are reading this right now, you would like to get better at choosing. Why?
So you can keep moving. As a creative man, you hate to feel stuck and immobile. You want to move something along — even if that something is figuring out how you can sit still more. The point is, you want to be able to choose your path forward.
To enjoy your “waffles” — those times when you are struggling to make the best decision in a timely manner — you need to become more confident at making decisions.
Okay, but how?
If you haven’t already, please listen to this brief talk (about 12 minutes) by Dr. Ivan Joseph about how to develop the skill of confidence. (If you’ve already seen it, keep reading now).
Confident decision-making, like confidence with anything we do, comes with repetition.
If you want to get better at making decisions, make more of them. Repetition is how we become more confident.
