If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there. - Lewis Carroll

Decision making is part of our everyday life. Simple things like deciding whether or not to get out of bed (or hit the snooze button) can be tantamount to choosing a career path if we are uncertain of what we want the end result to be. Those last few minutes of sleep may make you question if getting out of bed is even worth the trouble. Undoubtedly, after weighing the options (like the need for food, water or to go to work) and the possible consequences, the decision to get out of bed becomes simplified.

Choosing a career or life path requires much the same thought process. It requires thought on the end result i.e. it required direction.  Not having a direction, not having a goal, not knowing where you are going, it’s all the same. You go nowhere. You can never get “there,” can never arrive anywhere, because you don’t really have a destination. Without direction, without a destination, without a goal, how do you pick a direction, choose a road, or plot a course to get “there”?

When was the last time you sat down to ponder the direction you wish to take? You can take some time to write down some short and long term goals. In that moment focus only on the destination (resist the urge to focus on restrictions). Then break down the goal into small manageable tasks. As you complete each task acknowledge your achievement and focus on the next task at hand while never losing sight of the larger picture.

Today, I commit to changing my life by finding direction.
