ecision-making is a process. It's a rewarding one whether it's for goal attainment, smart decisions, your American Dream, quality of life, fame & fortune, simplicity, or a mental exercise - and exercise feels good.
You assess a situation, you consider your alternatives and their repurcussions, and then make a conscious, deliberate decision. Maybe you temper your mind with your heart, your gut, your moral compass, but you make a prudent choice using a smart process.
Where will you live? By the sea? (I hate being land-locked but wouldn't want to lose my home or my life to a hurricane.) A city? (More than half the world's population now does.)
What will you do for food clothing and shelter? Will you hunt? Farm? Sew hides? Weave? Live in a cave? Build a log cabin? Do you need money for these things? If so, how much? How will you get money? Steal, work, public assistance, beg?
Will you have children? With whom? How will you raise them? Alone? How about their clothing, a home, healthcare, and education?
What about your health? How might you pay doctors or buy medicine? What if you can't work?
How about old age? Will you work til you die? Who will take care of you if you're sickly? Where will you get money? Who will bury you?
How will you get and manage money? How much do you need?
In life, you can choose your own path, otherwise it will be chosen for you. You can live life on purpose or by accident. You can be captain of your ship or a victim. No decision, is a decision.
It's up to you.
