Choosing Differently

I changed my mind.

Many people cause themselves and others a tremendous amount of stress by agonizing over certain decisions that they have made and later regret.

Instead of agonizing over a change in decision, recognize that the answers have changed and that the best thing that can be done is to take appropriate action (choose differently) and communicate early!

Caveat:  by no means does this mean you should walk away from your legal obligations!  Simply remember when you make decisions such as accepting a job, making an investment, a major purchase, or committing your resources to a particular project that is okay to say no after thinking about it.

Moreover, being open, honest and flexible go a long way in times of chaos. Things such as rigidity, fear and fearing of the disapproval of others can cause more pain than you can fathom.
