Unsure of the next step?

I have an exercise that might just help you out! Sometimes we force ourselves to make big decisions under deadlines, sometimes we just simply TALK a decision to death. I know because I have done it ALL! My poor family!  In this video, I am sharing a method that I have used  to make hard choices that really worked for me. I call it the “index card method.” I wish I had something more sophisticated to call it! What I have realized is that some of my biggest breakthroughs have come when I don’t get obsessive. I have learned to trust myself (and God!) to know what is right for me as an individual. This method doesn’t have to be relegated to big business turning points. It can work on anything where you might have several options and are unsure of which one to choose. Go into the exercise with peace, calm and a little bit of time.

What do you think? Tell me how you have gone about making tricky decisions in the comments!

    I really like this idea! I certainly could use such an approach to hammer out the same questions I have in terms of my own future path. Thank you for sharing your experience and your ideas…

    Great advice Monica! I appreciate your wisdom and insight. I especially enjoyed how you said you did not put pressure on yourself while making your decision. Such a wise piece of advice for effective decision making.

    • Thanks Katie! Sometimes we pressure ourselves right out of our “peaceful” place for no reason!

    This is great Monica. I love this idea. So simple for any of us to do!

    I do this all the time with paint chips when I’m trying to decide what color to paint the wall – never crossed my mind to use it to make life decisions, but it does make sense! Perhaps not all life decisions though. I would imagine writing ‘divorce’ on a sticky note and taping it on the hallway wall could make things a little awkward around the house. 😀
