Who among us hasn’t made a decision or taken action that we’d later regret? I’d suggest that, as a human, we are ALL in that boat.
Want to minimize and/or eliminate this going forward, saving the time, money and tears resulting from regrettable decisions or actions? A key way to do this is to: Question Everything!
My wife and I attend a weekly Bible Study, and we just began a series called Ask It, by Andy Stanley.
Before deciding to skip this post, because you “aren’t religious”, this topic isn’t about asking if what we are about to do is legal, ethical and/or morally right. It involves asking ourselves an even higher level question, as we consider our response to any invitation, opportunity or decision.
In summary, the question to ask is:
In light of my past experiences, current circumstances, future hopes and dreams, what is the wise thing for me to do? – Andy Stanley
An extremely powerful question.
Would you agree that if this question had been asked consistently, earlier in life, we might be in a much different / even better place today?
That said, instead of dwelling on the past, we can make better decisions going forward.
If you’d like to experience Clearer Skies in 2015 (building on a prior post) you are encouraged to view Andy Stanley’s powerful video (Question Everything). It is available free, online, by clicking here, or on the image below.
Here is to making better decisions in 2015, which will increasingly create clearer skies going forward!
