Debt is when you owe something, or you are in the red.
Being aware of the areas of our lives in which we are currently in debt is the first step toward making changes. 🦋
Decision debt is when you refuse to make decisions because you’re afraid of what might happen if you make the wrong decision, or you don’t want to deal with the responsibility that might come with making big decisions.
The unmade decisions pile up in your mind, causing you to feel confused and exhausted, and you haven’t even done anything! 🤯
The ruminating that comes with decision debt needlessly consumes your time and energy, and all of those unmade decisions live rent-free in your head, nagging you to DO something about them. 😓
Because not making a decision is a decision, after all, that has consequences. And the consequence of not making a decision is usually stagnation, at best.
So how do you work your way out of decision debt? The answer is to MAKE DECISIONS.
Make as many decisions as possible. The more decisions you make, the better you will get at it. And really, what’s so bad about making a wrong decision here and there? Is it possible you may learn from it and actually get even better?
You can start with easy decisions if it helps: creamy or crunchy peanut butter? It doesn’t matter, give yourself 10 seconds and then pick one and move on! 🥜
Decide ON PURPOSE what you want and the steps you are going to take to get there. Simply deciding to do something is so powerful in and of itself. 💜
Stop living in default, or at the mercy of unintentional decisions. It’s time to take action and create the life you really want! 👏
Making decisions in life is what propels us forward and keeps us growing. 🌱
What decisions have you been putting off that you can make today? 💙
