“What we choose says much about us. It is a question of choice” #bgdtcoaching.
Most aspects of life, including that vast area labelled ‘work’, consist of a question of choice. At each moment we are faced with options and what we choose impacts not only on the present, but also on subsequent phases of our existence.
If we stop to draw breath and take stock of where we are right now, it will become clear our actual position is the result of past choices. We either chose to follow our instinct, made a rational decision or for whatever reasons handed over responsibility for the selection to another person or circumstances.
Past mistakes do not need to be repeated however. If what we have done so far hasn’t brought us to where we want to be, we can think seriously about making changes. As ever, it is a question of choice. And what we choose says much about us.
Whatever the motive behind our choices in the past – valid or reckless, ill-advised or smart – the good thing is that how today and tomorrow eventually impact on us is a question of choice. If we wish, we can begin immediately to make decisions leading, we trust, to our desired objectives.
