For many decisions the answer will only be yes or no – without thinking about it for more than a split second.
- How about these decisions that require a bit more thinking? How about questions that involve ethical standards?
- How about the hard choices to make?
I’ve faced numerous situations this year that required me to listen to myself. Choices I had to make involved business proposals, friendships and dating.
How do I decide on matters that involve a grey zone?
I use my brain and reference the situation to past events in my life and others I have heard or read about that relate to my problem.
Of course I look at the possible outcomes and what they mean to me and to others (the second part is equally important).
I try not to reduce myself to thinking but also listen to the inner voice below my neck. I try to get in touch with my feelings. My brain might be able to fool myself. My emotions can’t. If my body shows any signs of discomfort I know that I need to listen to it.
