Life Choices

Everyday life asks us to make certain choices that improve our quality of life and if we are lucky, will have a positive impact on others. This requires us to choose well. Make a selection that has analyzed all the alternatives, possible outcomes, and consequences the decision that we are about to make. Choosing well makes us take into consideration a great deal of everyday stuff which we may not want to consider, but do on the basis of the impact we are expecting to encounter when the decision is made.

Understanding the fundamentals helps each of us formulate our logic to derive an outcome. The outcome often takes an alternate course based on criteria which are neither anticipated nor expected. There are also trade-offs of which we become aware. A decision in one area can quickly impact a decision in another area. Decisions from our personal lives are often intertwined with decisions from our professional lives. A single decision will impact both areas. By taking the time to analyze the uncertainties, your personal and professional risks, and the linkages to other pending decisions which you will need to make, your decision will be well-grounded and provide you with forward motion to live your everyday to the fullest.
