A week ago the right hemisphere of my brain fell under the full fledge attack of a myriad of decisions I needed to make before the fall semester began. Decisions related to the type of classes to take, the amount of classes to take, the appropriate times to take those classes and where to take those classes. Immediately following our first breath of air (after being spanked on the derriere by a doctor) we are catapulted into a life infected by a cornucopia of decisions that need to be made. We decided when to take our first steps, whether to make “dadda” or “momma” our first words, if we desire to be a law abiding citizen or a criminal, which profession to pursue, if we prefer to make a difference or be a mediocre statistic, etc. As the hour hand on life’s time clock rotates (clockwise) the decisions we make mutate in complexity and are appended with ramifications.
“A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion.” –Chinese Proverb
Decisions regardless of size should never be rushed or made without taking the time to properly weigh all options or consequences.
The decisions we make will determine how straight we can keep our shell (kayak) as we scull (row) during the repechage of our lives!
We will always be surrounded by decisions each day of our lives. Will you choose to make the right or wrong decisions?
“We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision.” – Gary Collins
