Deep Insights Journal
Last month, when needing to make a few decisions, two familiar old friends of mine turned up;  fear and indecisiveness. 

When we have to decide and move ahead, sometimes we simply get stuck and end up in paralysis.  I have discovered that my personal ROI or return on investment in life suffers drastically when this happens.

Sound familiar?  If so, read on for a few suggestions!

Fear and Making the Wrong Decision     

When trying to decide on something recently that seemed extremely important, I found myself feeling stuck and frustrated. The problem in trying to make the "right" decision is that we can develop "analysis paralysis." Many times the perceived importance of the decision can feel overwhelming. Some of us may have a hard time simply deciding what to order on the restaurant menu. We turn and churn about trying to make perfect decisions when sometimes we don't even have all of the necessary information to make those decisions. Ultimately this takes our time and our peace away from us.

Time Management


Time Management Skills  

Dates:  Dec 16, 2014  



Time is like a river; it keeps on flowing even though we get caught up in its turbulence and can't seem to come up for air. Later, we realize that we are out of balance and off course both personally and professionally. Without effective time management skills, new and constantly changing corporate objectives can be overwhelming, leaving us feeling out of control.
