We’ve all encountered situations in our lives where we’ve been forced to make a decision. We’ve all made that decision and then sat and waited for the results. It’s as if we’ve been waiting for a clock to run out. It’s a decision that can be made in minutes, hours, or days.
I see this all the time with friends. They just don’t want to do something. They just think they’ll regret it later, or feel guilty or whatever the excuse is.
There will be times where you are forced to make a decision but in the end, the outcome is not what it seems. The reason your friend doesnt want to do something is because they are afraid of what they might regret later. A decision you make that is not the best choice could be the very thing that causes your friend to regret it.
The opposite can also apply. If there’s something that you always do, you might end up regretting it later. Sometimes it makes sense. Like if you always eat lunch at your desk, but you end up not eating lunch for a few days because that’s the only way you can keep from eating a third of your lunch.
So basically, it’s a matter of making the decision and trusting that you will remember. Sometimes that takes a lot of concentration. But it can also be a very small decision that you make in your head. You might even decide that you don’t care.
Like you might regret not eating a third of your lunch for a few days if you decide you don’t like it, but you still think you should. The same thing can apply to your time. I hate the fact that I am always late to everything that I do, but I am also very aware that I am always late to everything that I do.
It seems that the only thing keeping me from getting everything done on time is the fact that it is always an exact few days late. It is really difficult to work on things when the time to do it is always in the future. You have the options of doing things now, or waiting until you have everything done. But it gets more complicated when you consider that you have to get ahead of everything, and then plan your time accordingly.
This is true. You have to find a way to do something today, and do it well enough that you can get ahead of everything else. The way I like to do this is by getting everything done last night. This way I can do it right now and still get ahead of everything else.
This is true too. You have to get everything done last night. If you don’t, something will go wrong and you won’t be able to get ahead of everything else. This can be a problem if you have a lot to do and don’t want to waste time in the middle of it.
The first step is to do what you have to do. If you have a lot to do, go ahead and do it first. If you have a lot to do, do it last night. You’ll get ahead of everything else if you do it just right.
