Are Taking Decisions Important?

Why is it so important to take decisions in life? I keep asking myself this question every day.

I used to hate taking decisions and making life choices. I feared them. I was scared that if I decided to do something and it didn’t work out as planned, then I’d be doomed.
Whether it was deciding which college to go to, which major, which career, which country and so on. It was always my parents who did everything for me when I was younger. I was under the impression that they would always take every decision, every choice, and every step for me.

But, I was wrong. Sooner or later I realized that taking decisions are an essential part of our lives. Now that I’ve grown up, I have to make these life choices on my own. It may seem scary at first but it’s true. It’s important for us to understand the importance of moving on in life. Life is never stagnant, people never wait, and opportunities never return again. We must be bold enough to decide what’s right for us because we are responsible for ourselves.

Don’t be afraid of the outcomes. You may go wrong, but it won’t kill you to try.
The worst case scenario: You’ll regret it for the rest of your life, but at least you tried! Also, you won’t know if it is the right decision until you try. Always remember one thing, be confident in what you do.

I hope my little piece of advice will help you overcome your fear of taking decisions in life. Start small and you’ll end up taking major decisions in no time! 🙂

    Great post! Making decisions shouldn’t be as scary as we make it out to be. I once attended a seminar taught by an MBA professor from Columbia University and she mentioned that on average, we make about 30,000 decisions everyday. Even deciding how much toothpaste to use is a decision! Of course, stepping out into the world and making more important decisions is different. But I agree, even if it’s the wrong decision, at least you’ll learn from it!

      Thank You! And, I couldn’t agree more with you. It’s the small things we decide that make us who we are. 🙂
