“It’s your decision.” Few words can bring about such power and such fear.
For a big part of my life, I weighed every decision very carefully. Then I learned it’s often better to get into action than to ponder things too long.
While it’s good to consider options, it’s also wise to make decisions more quickly and move on. Whether it’s right or wrong, at least I’m in motion. If not, inertia can set in. I like to opt for “ertia,” the informal opposite of inertia.
