In all aspects of life, we find ourselves making decisions.   It may be in relation to our health, work, finances, children, home, marriage — so many things.   And we can go this way, or that way.

The decisions we make every day affect our course, either for that day, week, month or even further into the future.  Sometimes knowing which steps to take can be difficult.  Sometimes knowing where to get advice can be difficult.

Sometimes we talk to someone older who has had some experience in life, a parent, grand-parent, friend — and they say something that helps us know how to make a decision.  Sometimes we see something on a video or website, or read something, that helps us just at the right moment.   Like seeing Celia.  She has some good advice about what to do before making a decision.

It helps our emotional and mental health, physical health, financial health and our natural and spiritual health, to make good decisions.  Listening to our wisest like Celia, and getting help from the older persons in our lives can make a big difference.  They are still taking care of us.  Let’s take care of them, and listen to them.

A worth repeating post from July 29, 2014 ·

“Suppose you were to come upon someone in the woods working feverishly to saw down a tree.

‘What are you doing?’ you ask.
‘Can’t you see?’ comes the impatient reply. ‘I’m sawing down this tree.’
‘You look exhausted!’ you exclaim. ‘How long have you been at it?’
‘Over five hours,’ he returns, ‘and I’m beat! This is hard work.’
‘Well, why don’t you take a break for a few minutes and sharpen that saw?’ you inquire. ‘I’m sure it would go a lot faster.’
‘I don’t have time to sharpen the saw,’ the man says emphatically. ‘I’m too busy sawing!’”

Taken from ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ by Stephen R. Covey

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. Work smart.
