Summer is officially here and it’s time to look ahead to what you’re going to do with your life this summer and what you want from the rest of the year as well. One of the most important decisions we make throughout our lives is what we’re going to do with each and every day. We have to make decisions about working, spending money, the people we’re going to allow into our lives, how we treat others, how late we’re going to stay up, how early we’re going to get up, our values, what we eat, resting and rejuvenating, where we want to live, where we shop and countless other things.
We not only have the challenge of making the decision, but of making the best decision and turning our decisions into results too. We don’t always make the best decisions nor do we always follow through on the decision we make. If you want to see your life improve, it’s time to start making better decisions and get better at following through on those decisions.
How do you make the best decisions for your life? First by not blaming anyone else for things that go wrong that you are really to blame for. You can’t always anticipate what others will do or predict the crazy things that go on around the world, but you certainly can do something about the choices you make in your life. Second, don’t use the “I don’t know” excuse. There are so many answers available online that you can access with just a couple of clicks most likely, so to say you’re uneducated or not smart enough isn’t an excuse anymore. Finally, become a doer. Watching and learning is important, but it’s what you do with what you know that ultimately matters.
This summer I encourage you to take time to watch and learn. Don’t let the excuse that you don’t know something fly anymore, choose to learn and improve your life.
