Decision making becomes a chore for me when I haven’t established clear priorities…and maybe it’s the same for you.
Priorities may be dictated by any number of things including: your feelings, personal goals, your health, business mission, deadlines,or your mother’s voice bouncing around in your head. But honestly, establishing priorities is as simple as Stephen Covey’s rule: First Things First.
So simple, yet no so easy. Start with logic but don’t end there. Even if you do manage to set your priorities there’s one more thing you must do– check in with our intuition because even logic has its limitations.
Don’t ignore this powerful decision making tool. Your intuition is an internal compass pointing the way to the decision that honors your life purpose.
But accessing clear “inner communication” can fail when clutter abounds. Physical clutter, mental clutter and emotional clutter.
If you’re not feeling confident making decisions it just might be time clear your space, get quiet, think less and feel more.

Nothing makes me crazier than knowing the truth about something and choosing to dismiss it.
Decades ago, I worked as a part of a merchandising/design team for a women’s sportswear company. As we developed designs for each new season we were required to present them to the president and sales manager for critique and “adoption.” In fact, the meetings were called adoption meetings! In essence, it meant your “job” was on the line each week. No matter how well we defended our choices of fabric, pattern and style, decisions were often made for what seemed like ridiculous reasons.
But this one time, the president uttered a statement that made my jaw drop. He said, “We know it’s the right thing to do–but we can’t do it.” Honestly, I no longer recall what he was referring to–but it doesn’t really matter.
Of course, what he meant was…”We know it’s the right thing to do, but we are ‘CONSCIOUSLY AND DELIBERATELY CHOOSING NOT TO DO IT!”
The thing was that there wasn’t anything stopping him from doing the right thing, he simply choose not to. This meant that everything done in relation to this decision was FALSE. A LIE. A SHAM. And that just pissed me off to no end.
And that is how I feel when someone is given a piece of truth about their life purpose and then chooses to ignore it and proceed rapidly in the opposition direction. As a coach, I’ve seen this happen time and again.
If you want to be living in your purpose, first find out what it is if you don’t know, and then proceed Consciously and Deliberately along your path and honor your truth. It will make your life so much easier and happier.
