Decision Making

How important is decision making to you personally?

Napolean Hill said that analysis of over twenty-five thousand men and woman who had experienced failure disclosed the fact that lack of decision was near the top of the list of the thirty-one major causes of failure. Procrastination, the opposite of decision, is a common enemy, which practically every person must conquer.

If that is true, making right decisions will change our lives to the better. To get on the road to success in any endeavour we need to make decisions.

I look back on my past, and realise that I had to start getting more decisive (I used to be quite hesitant in making decisions). Not all of my decisions worked out but I managed to form a habit of making decisions and being decisive and I focused on making the right decisions according to the will of God (or so I believe).

I find that starting with small decisions and expand from there helps me in life, minstry, relationships and business. I guess once we start making the right decisions we'll see our life improve in every area. Let's face it indecision and procrastination don't get results! There are no rewards when we're indecisive and procrastinate, and it can be frustrating to others and ourselves.

What are your experiences in decision making and procrastination? And how do you overcome the difficulties related to making decisions?

Doubtless there are times when we really "must" wait on the Lord but I am persuaded that as believers we really should step out on faith and "cast our bread on the water" watching carefully to see which way He leads us.

Another great post sis! ;-)

You are so right brother! We must find a balance between waiting on the Lord and stepping out on faith by making the right decisions! The Lord has been telling me to cross the Jordan and I know that I've been waiting too long hehe...

Thanks KC! :)
