Sometimes we make decisions about things we think we’d like, rather than what we feel. A few months ago I was inspired by this video
So now every month I choose something new to study or try. It’s definitely a great experience and I am always enticed by learning and feeding my curiosity. I encourage you all to try it.
Recently though, I discovered that perhaps I shouldn’t plan out so far ahead. I was all pumped to try out some new experiences during the upcoming months - Meditation, Lucid Dreaming, and a whole bunch of others. However, I guess there are quotes all around us like this for some reason...
"If you have one eye on yesterday, and one eye on tomorrow, you're going to be cockeyed today." - Author Unknown
Instead of planning so far ahead, maybe I should wait a few days before the new month starts to see where my curiosity is. At least that’s what I’m going to try in the future, how ironic....
Although this is a simple story I always like to think of the Ripple Effect. There’s multiple lessons we can get out of the university of life.
Just because you planned or decided on something, don’t let yourself remain attached to your decision if your heart isn’t in the same place. We often feel obligated to honor past decisions and plans even though we’re in a totally different place in our life. There’s a phrase that I like to use often
“you’ll get over it”
and the truth is that I will and so will you. Sure it takes some courage to admit that our decision/plans didn’t pan out or that we made them prematurely, but when we can release ourselves from the attachment of those decisions that didn’t pan out we’re able to move forward and reach our goals much faster.
Any special techniques you all use to make better decisions?
