In life, we always come across situations of This or That, and we find ourselves standing at crossroads at each of these times. We are constantly in a state of questioning our credibility, or I may say individuality. The thought of “Life was better when we were kids” passes my mind every now and then; it might do for some of you, too. But just like we had the ‘Against’ and ‘For’ podiums at school debating competitions, people in life may also disagree with my imaginary little concept of decision-making.
I am always surprised by how easily people write under the soft-skills section of their resume, ‘Good at decision-making’. Making decisions is such a big task in itself for me. Dealing with life gives us different situations or, may I say opportunities, and to deal with them we develop our own set of theories that sometimes work but mostly don’t. And if you are situated at crossroads at this point with circumstances such as the mountains to deal with, then it makes decision-making a little bit risky.
We are just different sets of people dealing every day with some or the other thing. But one live example that could save all of us from the This and That situation is listening to ourselves.
Have you ever listened to yourself giving advice to your friends when they rant about their life? Listen to your words carefully, these are just waves of positivity pouring out of your wiser self that has been buried under all the dump of self-criticism and self-sabotage.
Categorising on the basis of how we deal with situations, some people just ignore and abide by going with the flow, while others, when faced eye-to-eye with life, list down all their plans. These people prepare a list of ‘Essentials’ when setting out for a vacation.
Choose your side wisely or else…I will be on the other end waiting on the same page beginning with ‘To Be Or Not To Be — that is the question’.
