How to make decisions that you can live with

See also

In life, tough decisions have to be made in order for us to move forward. There is no way around that fact. We, as decision makers, have the hardest job on this planet. Our decisions will determine whether we live good or unbearable lives.

As we navigate through life's enchanted maze, paths, in the form of opportunities, will present themselves to us. To the best of our abilities, we will make decisions in regards to which direction to travel. Some of us will make the right decision, some will make the wrong decision, and others will remain stationary because they are indecisive.

There are many ways for us to reach our desired destinations, just as there are many ways that will lead us astray.

Everyone’s destination is unique; therefore, the right decision made by an individual may not necessarily be the right decision that we all should make. Each decision should be based on its maker’s unique situation, although, in some cases, there are generic situations that allow us to utilize the successful experience of others.

“Crying is all right in its way while it lasts,” C.S. Lewis, the author of The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other fiction novels, was quoted as saying, “but you have to stop sooner or later, and then you still have to decide what to do.”

In making the right decision, the general rule is not to decide thoughtlessly. Think about your choices and reason them out thoroughly. Should you make a short-term decision or should you make a decision that will benefit you in the long run? Will your decision produce a positive result for all parties involved? Is this decision of yours a decision that you can live with? Because if it's not, your future might be haunted by a decision that you make today.
