Most of us have weak decision-making muscles…

“Most of us have weak decision-making muscles. We do not realise what it means to make a real decision. We fail to recognise the force of change that a truly congruent, committed decision makes.

The word “decision” comes from Latin roots, with de meaning “down” or “away from” and caedere meaning “to cut.” Therefore, a decision means cutting from any other possibility. A true decision means you are committed to achieving a result and cutting yourself off from any other possibility.

Committed decisions show up in two places: your calendar and your bank account. No matter what you say you value, or even think your priorities are, you have only to look at last year’s calendar and bank account to see the decisions you have made about what you truly value.

See how you have reserved your time. Look at your expenditures. Those are the trails to the decisions you have made writes author Carole Hildebrand in On Time (lightly edited for clarity).”

This week I fully committed to a decision for September 2023, which I am super excited about, and as a result, I‘ve had the most fruitful week of the year so far. I hadn’t realised my previous indecision was actually causing procrastination.
