“Before you decide, review your values.”
We all have wants, needs and desires. These feelings indicate what we value most. But, sometimes, wants, needs and desires come into conflict, and we must decide where to invest our time and attention.
No one can do everything at once. So, when a conflict arises, take the time to think about your long-term values before you make a decision about where to focus your energy.
Remember, when you focus on one thing, you often must let go of another (at least for the time being). Ultimately, you must go with the decision that supports your highest values, and will make you happiest, both now and in the future.
But, don’t delay. Fulfillment and joy await you, after a decision is made.
