Decisions Decisions Decisions!

There sometimes comes in our life a time to make big calls.  This week I have had to make three and frankly I am worn out. In days past I would have assumed the position, and planted my head truly and firmly in the sand, watching and waiting for someone else to make a decision for me.  If I was lucky then someone else might have made the decision for me.  A bit like having a little niggle in a tooth, it starts off as a vague ache but left unattended the cost can be enormous,  The main driver of procrastination is not laziness but fear.  I have learnt this lesson the hard way and the cost has been huge, however, I have learnt.

I am not saying that these decisions have come without cost and some of them I may even regret. But they were unavoidable if I wanted to keep my integrity and be a responsible parent, friend and employee.  I have felt the fear and done it anyway.  These were not rash spur of the moment decisions, these kinds of decisions always have a high price to pay and are most often regretted.  I have thought things through carefully and in a reasoned manner.  One of the decisions was way past overdue and I have paid a toll in a loss of my own personal sense of integrity.

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths that some people are prepared to go to so that they can avoid conflict.   All avoidance has a cost and like a bank loan the longer you avoid paying that cost the greater amount it costs you to make that decision.  I recommend an approach to issues that you know you are avoiding is direct and reflective and this will pay off in the end.  In the meantime
Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.
