Is there such a thing as the wrong time to decide? Is there a good time to make decisions?
I’ve made some awful decisions, the consequences of which I still feel up to today, at a time when I felt I was at my strongest. Was it pride that made me feel that way?
Then I’ve made at least one fantastic decision at a time I felt that I was at my lowest.
The Wrong Time To Decide?
I found this quote interesting.
“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” – Robert H. Schuller
I can see where Schuller is coming from when it comes to decisions about entering into a new relationship, embarking on an adventure or making a big career change.
But what is the right time for a woman who is being abused to decide that she should leave the relationship? What’s the best time for an employee to quit an organisation in which she feels unfairly treated?
I really have no answer.
This week, like the week before, I’ll leave you with a question:
What is a good time to make an important decision?
