Death By Indecision

In the fable of Buridan’s Donkey, a donkey reaches a fork in the road. If he goes right he’ll find hay; if he goes left he’ll find water. He is both equally hungry and thirsty and therefore can’t decide which path to take first.  Paradoxically, he sits at the fork in the road making no strides in either direction and he dies from his indecision. 

No decision, as in the story, is the very definition of indecision. But a less obvious form of indecision is perhaps more common.  This form of indecision is the attempt to take and apply all the choices; going halfway down every path but not committing your effort and energy to a single one.  This form of indecision will also not get you either the hay OR the water; but it will make you more tired and more hungry in the process.

The good news is, if you are thoughtful and have integrity, most choices are good ones and will funnel themselves into success.  

Pick one path and walk down it.  Decision made, watch how much you accomplish.

Happy Sunday,
