“If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”
Making decisions is difficult. And making those that impact one’s future career and life are often the hardest. Choosing one option over another without knowing what the outcome could be is scary and traps us in the grip of indecision. But indecision does not spare us from making mistakes; it is a mistake. It prevents us from taking risks and without taking risks, we shy away from failure and thus do not learn and grow. What matters to us is important and therefore, researching options and making a choice is vital. How do you know what’s the right decision? The right choice? The truth is you don’t. But by choosing not to decide, you choose stagnation, boredom, and lack of meaning.
