I was talking to a friend and we were having a conversation about what her future as a mother/employee would look like in 5 years. and she said, “Well, I don’t know how I’ll feel about working when I have my first child.”
I’m thinking in my head, “well duh…you don’t have any children now, so how would you know how being a mother felt?”
I wasn’t being mean, but I got a little frustrated about it.
It made me think about how everyone wants to ‘make the right decisions.’
Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think anyone consciously wants to make ‘wrong’ decisions, but I think sometimes we can take it too far by not doing anything. We get stuck in “analysis paralysis” trying to figure out what’s going to happen in the future…like we can really predict the future.
We can only ‘predict’ the future by the actions we take and the thoughts we have now. But doing nothing and ‘worrying‘ doesn’t create the future we want… it just creates more of what we don’t want…or nothing at all.
Instead of trying to be right about your decisions (and never making any) –
Make a decision and MAKE IT RIGHT.
