We have all heard it… said it… or thought it, at some point in time. The implication: a need for clarity, but have you ever thought about what it means, to “decide”…?
[Middle English deciden, from Old French decider, from Latin dēcīdere, to cut off, decide: dē-, de- + caedere, to cut; see kaə-id- in Indo-European roots.]
- de·cid·ed, de·cid·ing, de·cides
1.a. To reach a conclusion or form a judgment or opinion about (something) by reasoning or consideration: decide what to do.
- To settle conclusively all contention or uncertainty about: decide a case; decided the dispute in favor of the workers.
- To influence or determine the outcome of: A few votes decided the election.
- To pronounce a judgment; announce a verdict.
- To reach a decision; make up one’s mind.
In a world where we have so many options from which to choose, consider for a moment, the power of a conscious thought to cut off any, and all other options, except one… start on that one option, and then F.O.C.U.S.*
In a motivational video, actor Will Smith states, “There’s no reason to have a Plan B, because it distracts from Plan A.”
Similarly, in his video, David Shands explains his secret to multiple streams of income, which illustrates why the conventional approach is so ineffective. Hint: too many options.
How would your life change, if you changed the way you think about what it means, to “decide”…? How would your business change…? Would it be a departure from the norm…?
The cool thing is, all you have to do, is… just decide.
If you got some value, out of this, be sure to leave me a comment…!
