A concept that has been preached to children since the beginning of time: decision making. You probably remember your parents teaching you the importance of making good decisions when you were young. When you became a teenager, you started to make your own decisions. Now, you’re all grown up. Do you still think about the decisions you make?
Over my years of studying human behavior, I’ve noticed that people mainly make decisions in one of two ways, either by intention or by default. Intentional decision makers devote time and effort into inspecting the choices and making the best decision based on the knowledge they have. Default decision makers simply base their decision on whatever is left for them to choose.
An intentional decision maker understands that every decision affects his/her quality of life. Every time a decision is made in favor of one thing, every other choice is intentionally declined. If you make the decision to live in one specific location, you are also deciding to NOT live in every other available place on Earth. Living with intention allows for better control of the life we choose to live. Become more intentional with every decision you are faced with. Don’t let others decide how you will chart the course of your life.
Be in charge of your own destiny. Intentionally align each decision you make with achieving higher goals.
