The value of decisiveness

Being decisiveness in life is like playing Tetris, every random block that emerges at the top is a decision to be made. It is your choice to not make the decision but then you also don’t get to play for long and have fun.

Keeping this in mind, thought of sharing a simple perspective with you.

These days before booking Uber and Ola, one needs to pray. My wife was getting late for work. We tried booking the short trip to her office multiple times but had no luck. I was even more worried because it became my responsibility to drop her the moment this happens. 

The clock was ticking. We both were just badly hoping for some rider to confirm. At the same time, we were cursing the service. 

Hope is a bad strategy. What is the probability that someone will accept the ride in the next five minutes?

A decision had to be made here. I have to simply get up and drop my wife to the office instead of wasting more time. And I just did that. It had to be done. It took a 30-minute round trip. My wife was happy that she reached out just in time for a meeting. 

This is so trivial as compared to the more significant decisions that life demands.

Indecisiveness kills. You either hope for a miracle to happen or curse the situation. 

Every change that you long for needs some decision to be made immediately. Wish to be more fit, what is the decision that you need to take right now. Wish to find a better role? What is the first decision that you need to make today?

With every decision, your life changes a bit. Consider it has a left or right turn while driving.

A slight right on the GPS will take you on a flyover, a slight left might lead to a service road.
