Life’s Choices and Decisions Are Yours to Make

There are always choices and decisions being made.

According to multiple sources, human beings make over 30,000 choices A DAY. That is a lot of choices.

But for the most part, you don’t make them consciously. Let’s face it, if you did, I think you’d probably go mad. Thirty-thousand-plus choices, per day, add up fast. That means that in a 30-day month, you make 900,000 choices. Hence, per year you’re making more than 11 million choices.

It’s a very good thing that so many of the choices you make are automated. Again, I can’t imagine 30,000+ choices a day wouldn’t drive a person mad. However, just because most are automatic, by rote, routine, or habit, that doesn’t mean that they’re not all up for grabs.

In other words, life’s choices and decisions are yours to make. All you need to do is become actively consciously aware to take control of them.

Recognize and acknowledge the levels

When you get down to it, choices and decisions come in four sizes. Yes, there are more than that, but to simplify matters let’s use only four.

They are big, medium, small, and seemingly insignificant.
