Sudden clarity

One's mind has a way of making itself up in the background, and it suddenly becomes clear what one means to do.
We wrestle with choice for weeks. Should we finished our education? We weigh the pros and cons, we research. Something still doesn't feel right. We set deadline and talk to someone we respect.

Then, suddenly, in the midst of that conversation, we realize we don't want to go back to school at all right now. Come to think of it, we have some opportunities at work that might provide the same education.

Our instinct was telling us something all along. It's interesting how often that happens.

Labouring over a choice, we use all our standard decision making tools, only to discover a wild card that changes everything.
"That makes perfect sense," we say. "Why didn't I think of that sooner?"

So don't get too anxious about your decision; You'll know what you need to do when the time comes.
