Paul Chek teaches that there are only three choices a person can make in any given situation:
- The optimal
- The sub-optimal
- Do nothing & gather more information
Now, we can go deeper into each one, but, if you have all of the information possible, then it’s not a matter of ‘knowing’ the ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ choice.
It’s a matter of making the best possible choice you can right now. Then you can reassess, collecting more information as you move forward.
I’ll add my own thought to this:
Whenever I’m having a hard time selecting ‘which choice is optimal’, I try to get really quiet, and go with what my gut, or my intuition tells me. Here are two specific ways I do that:
- Put down everything you’re working on & looking at. Get away from your screen. Go & sit in a quiet place, empty your mind completely for ten minutes, and just listen.
- If you’ve been working on it all day, and/or the decision can wait until tomorrow, then sleep on it.
