Marry your decisions

Marry decisions, don’t date them.

First, do your homework, conduct a thorough cost analysis or simply list the pro and cons. Then discuss your decision with someone trustworthy and objective.

Then commit.  A good marriage requires commitment.

When we “marry” our decisions, we commit to the process. We move forward with our vision for the future.  Happily married people do not “look around” for better partners. They are committed. When doubts or problems inevitably arise, they tweak the problem areas and adapt accordingly.

Here’s another way to see it. Ideally, when driving a car, our eyes dedicated to the road ahead, not the rear view mirror. When we second guess our thoughtfully made decisions; it’s like navigating a car through the limited perspective of the rear-view mirror. We end up spending time, attention, and energy looking at the road behind us.

Keep your eyes and ideas on the road ahead. It’s the best way to move forward.
