Oh no – this happened.  How do I move forward?

My wife, Joanne, and I have used a concise process for all the years of our marriage. When confronted with a decision, we allow a 2-week maximum for arriving at a decision. Whether it is where to move, what kind of car to purchase, making a career or business decision, or how to handle a difficult relationship with a relative, we approach the process as follows:

1. State the problem.

2. Get the advice and opinions of others.

3. List the alternatives.

4. Choose the best alternative.

5. Act.

And we avoid the crippling power of indecision. Yes, this process must be bathed in prayer. But a daily walk of integrity and character should provide confidence in moving ahead quickly with most any decision.

You, too, can deal effectively with the challenge of making solid decisions. Don’t be indecisive and unstable in all your ways. Rather, walk in the strength, confidence, and boldness that come from decisive action. Tweet This

Are you just one of the guys
Who asks all their peers to advise
Get off of that stoop
Away from that group
Reach up and go for the prize
