I'm a grey person. No, I don't mean gloomy or dusty. I mean that I often dwell in that space between black and white. Therefore, nobody has ever called me decisive. In fact, I know indecision all too well. Sometimes being grey can be good because not everything is clear cut, and I'm a big fan of recognizing the spectrum of things. But there are times when it pays (literally) to be decisive. And there are times when committing to a decision just seems overwhelming.
There are some well-known suggestions offered when having to make a big decision, such as:
1. Make a list of pros and cons for each side and then weigh the lists against each other.
2. Go with your intuition. Do what it is your heart tells you is the right thing.
3. Take a survey. Ask others what they would do in your position and go with what makes the most sense.
What do you do when you have a big decision to make?
