The Thing About Making A Decision

I have just had to make a big decision – you know the ones that are going to shift the course of your life and also possibly impact on others also – not the ‘what am I going to have for breakfast’ type decisions. – a real decision.
We have all made ‘real’ decisions in our life and made choices that have seen us embarking on a different course to what we are on. For me I think I need to do it – every 4-5 years – challenge myself – throw it all up in the air and see how it lands! So I have thrown it up in the air – I have told the people the decision will impact – some have shown understanding, other have turned it into an issue ‘about me’. But I know that the decision I have made, while hard, is the absolute best one for my business and my family – the 2 things that really matter for me.

So I did the hard thing and made a decision – it has been lurking over my head for at least 1 year to make – I have also told those people who will be impacted by it. All very scary, I am coping with that sick feeling in my tummy but I also know that it is the best thing to do for me.

So I have made the decision – I have committed to seeing it through – as they say ne door closes and another opens.
The door that is opening for us is going to be exciting, not just for ourselves but for all of our supporters – we are planning some rather larger activities that our supporter base will be able to get involved in – at a low cost or at times for FREE – this is going to be a terrific year for our business and also yours!

The first thing you need to do is make the decision that will change the way you are doing things – after all, if you continue to do the same things the same way you will continue to always be the same – make 2013 a year you change the course of what you are doing – go on be brave, be smart and see it through. I did and I can’t wait for the dust to settle, the planning to happen and for us to implement our new plan!
