I find myself making quick decisions most of the time. If it’s about a project, what to eat for dinner or where I should take a vacation. Do I regret my choices? Most of the time no; I always trust my initial gut reaction. I make these gut calls because spending time agonizing over the pros and cons for everything can be needlessly time consuming and tedious. There are moments when you need to make those long drawn out decisions that effect your life and your families life but most of the time, especially when it’s work related, they are small simple choices to make. So I say go with your gut and deal with it. The solution to a problem often comes in a flash, almost like a premonition. The key to success is acting on your instincts. I bet even if you make the wrong decision you can fix it in less time then if you would have spent all that time worrying about which way to go.
I know in some instances this might frustrate others. And if you are one of these people you have to know that I still thought about my decision, no matter how fast I came to the conclusion. It might have been something I’ve been thinking about on the side for awhile and it just looks like its a gut reaction. Even if I did make the wrong choice, its sometimes those wrong choices that can bring you to the right place.
Try it, make a choice from your gut, no matter how small. Even if its just if you are going to have a side salad or fries with your lunch. Make the choice and live with it. Learn to trust your decision-making ability. Ultimately, your success is dependent on the actions you take. So go with your gut and take action now.
