Here is one quote, one question, and big idea to challenge the way you make decisions and improve your life.

A quote…

A question…

How will this decision impact me five years from now?

To invest in your future self, you’ve got to think about your future self now.

A big idea…

Five years from now, I’ll be fifty-three.

I’ll be older, and slower and I’ll want whatever decisions I made five years ago to help make my life easier, not harder.

Picture yourself in five years.

What would your future self want from your decisions?


Do You Know How Important Decision Making Should Be to You?

It’s scary how most likely you don’t know how important decision making is.

You might be confused and think when I say important decision making I’m talking about big decisions. To be clear, I’m not. All your decisions should be important to you.

When you think about it, there isn’t a lot we control.

But a decision is one thing we do control. We have the choice in our hands. It is an incredible power, but one most of us spend our lives wasting.

It’s a regret many of us carry—including me.

You see, decisions define us.

From big decisions to seemingly small ones. Each one provides us with a moment of influence on our futures. One we control.

There is sad irony though.

Despite a decision's importance, we still let ourselves lose control despite the opportunity they offer. We concede control of our decisions.

This loss of control happens too often.

Why do we give up control—even when, deep down, we know how important decision making is?

It’s because we’ve forgotten how important decisions should be to us.
