Remember the last time you were driving somewhere new? You may have been nervous because you weren’t sure where you were going. Probably you had your navigation system helping out. But still, it can be a bit nerve wracking when you’re on unsure footing.
Maybe you missed a turn and had to re-route. Or possibly you swerved across a few lanes of traffic to get in the correct lane at the last second. But the fact that you’re here now, reading this, tells me that it was not the end of anyone’s world.
So let’s break it down: You had some decisions to make that day, right? First you decided to go somewhere you’d never been before. You had to decide how to get there. You had to choose the fastest route or the one that kept you off of major highways. You had to determine how early to leave, just in case you ran into any problems. And if one of my scenarios above occurred, you had to quickly shift gears and make split second course corrections.
Can I ask you a question; did you second guess any of those decisions?
Chances are you did. Chances are you second guess decisions way more often than you should. And it’s time for you to knock that off!
