Solving Problems by Finding the Right Solution

| May 01, 2024
The power of our mind is a beautiful gift that each and every one of us has. Our choices are make good decisions or make bad decisions.
In "The Slight Edge", author Jeff Olsen talks about making good decisions and watching the compounding effects of all these various good decisions. Nothing extraordinary to see here, we all struggle to make good decisions and sometimes we do in fact make bad decisions.
As an example, let's say you decide you should start doing daily walks of 30 minutes a day. That's probably a mile and a half as an average and I think we can all agree it is a good thing to do. So, the good decision is made and you take a step (no pun intended) in the right direction.
But what if the decision is to do the wrong thing? Instead of walking, you have the brilliant idea that you are going to have a martini and relax because you "deserve it", and so what happens? Well bad decisions compound as well as we know.
If you feel you need a reset and reminder as to the power of good decisions, I would absolutely recommend you pick up a copy of "The Slight Edge". It has a great philosophy and one that each of us should be reminded of from time to time to stay on track.
