We've all be there. The times when we are unsure or don't know what to do for a given challenge or direction in life. This happens to everyone from time to time. The secret is to know what to do to get yourself on the right track.
Over the years, I've developed a simple process to help me during these times. It has 3 easy steps.
First, take inventory. Get the thoughts on the situation out of your head by writing down everything that is swirling around in there. Make a solid list. You should write down the pros and cons and any other things that factor into the decision.
Second, once you've written everything down, take a break. At least 30 mins, if not a day, and then come back to it with a fresh set of eyes and perspective. Things will stand out and become apparent. From there you can begin to figure out what it is you will do. It is very important at this point to consider all sides and think through any other items that are important. Sometimes, you may find you totally forgot important aspects when you wrote everything down and can now add them. Take some time to think logically and not emotionally about everything. You will also want to solicit advice or feedback from those you trust during this time.
Third, once you have figured out the best course to take from reviewing what you wrote down and thinking through it, you must action on the next steps. It is best to write a small step by step plan to get going. Once you do, you will find momentum and you will start getting excited about moving forward.
This simply process has served me well for many years. The biggest part is just getting everything out of your head and on paper. This makes easier to find clarity and make decisions.
The next time you are faced with a situation where are you are unsure of what to do, use this method to help you find your way through and get on track.
