Decision’s are never easy. Even the ones we have certainty and conviction on can still leave us with doubt and uncertain in the back of our mind. ‘Is this a good idea?’ ‘Should I really do this?’ ‘But what if I fail?’ There’s very little certain in creativity and life.
But there is one thing I’m certain about: The default option is never a great idea.
Defaulting is deciding not to decide.
It’s meeting a fork in the road and deciding to do nothing.
Sometimes, deciding to do nothing can work out in our favor. Being neutral and not taking a side in other people’s conflicts has its benefits. But, having someone’s back is much better.
Staying inactive in our personal lives is not a great idea either.
Doing nothing leaves the results to chance or worse — other people’s desire for what our life should be, without considering what we personally want our life to be.
There’s little upside to non-decision in life. The cost of inaction far outweighs the cost of action and potential failure.
Doing nothing is also a decision.
