Don't Cry Now

We and I say "We", because I am including myself in that, need to think more before we react. At times, we do too much impulse decision making and that can turn out to be a disaster. I do not know about you, but I have made many decisions that I sometimes sit and think about and wish I could get a "do over" option. This is life though, this is not a movie and I do not get that chance. What do I do then? I decided that I would instead think more and act slower. Even though this may cause me some missed opportunities it increases my chances of making the correct decision.

Due to impulse decisions, I have made bad purchases, bad dating choices, and bad investments...but I realized that I am still young and can train myself to act differently. My mother always said, "don't cry over spilled milk" and I know some of you have heard this as well. There is no need to cry, what we have to do now is pick up the pieces. I have said it before and I will say it again "We do not get do-overs in life, but luckily we do have do-better." This is what I am trying to do; everyday that I am still breathing is a day where I can increase my lifetime production.

Think of yourself as a business entity. You will not always have a gain, but as long as at the end of the year your gain outweighs your losses then we have made a profit. We can also implement the SWOT analysis in our lives. I have made it my personal habit of monthly sitting down and evaluating my S(strength) W(weakness) O(opportunity) and T(threat) and once I know all of this I either switch up my game plan or I stay doing what I have been doing to achieve a positive outcome.
Try to add this to your routine and you will see what a difference it makes in your overall value of life.
