Recently I have been thinking about those moments when you know that is time for action, but you just call back. You slip the moment and the opportunity never brings back again. Sounds familiar? Check this out!
How We Perceive Time
Time is subjective, and it is very odd when you change your partner, job, school, city not to mention even moving abroad. Everything seems to be so chaotic for the first two weeks while you feel so rushed. But we don’t have those moments often do we? However, it is tough to make the right decision at the right time. If there was a single superpower that I would choose to get, knowing when is the right time is for me. Classy objection.
There aren’t any excuses that can justify when you missed the chance to get that opportunity. You saw that door open, but you let it close in your face. Doesn’t matter if it is a man/girl, money or career, it is gone now. That’s why this is strategy is wrong! it is a matter of mindset, before that chance to happen a reality. Are you diving in usually or you are calling back?
If you are asking yourself if that’s the right moment, you most likely ain’t going to dive in. It’s tricky. Catch the moment before its too late. And even asking yourself “Is that the moment?” probably it is, just because it pops into your mind. I do sometimes withdraw myself from new opportunities as well. But this is a balance question. If your life is being much steady lately, probably you should go for it. Hold your focus on the right course of action. Despite you never actually know if it is going to be good, it’s better to try. I am not telling you to sell your house on the casino, use your common sense, please. Yet thrust your gut feeling, not your brain. Our brain is made to save energy. It doesn’t like vegetables it likes pizza.
Rather wondering why you didn’t try, dive in and ask yourself why did I do it.
If you follow that quote you will enjoy more moments. Even if you stumble upon a bumpy road and things go wrong you certainly benefit from the experience. Action always entails some form of feedback, aka experience. And by default experience can’t be wrong, not always pleasant. Yet life it is what it is. And now you can share your story.
Decision-making is an actual process and skill that only a few people master through life. It is highly demanded and valued in business environments too. It is the ultimate life skill. Doesn’t matter what you do, if you get that single thing right you will be okay. Of curse, it is impossible to be always winning by chance. That’s why we get to learn from failures. And easily recover when we get our heads to wrap in the proper line of thoughts.
How to get more of every single moment?
A general rule of thumb is to always try. Calibrate after the fact. Face the truth you are not having life-changing situations every day. But to be ready when they come you have to act now. I am doing this myself too. I love to share my experiences here, to keep up us on the same page. Everyday life is always showing us something that we can do more, but are we willing to do so? There is not much to lose as it is so much to win.
Owning small moments makes us happy. Often we seek too much of a thing to elevate us, but frankly, small things move us in the right direction. Don’t be selfish all the time. Help that old lady on the bus, your college, a friend or whoever. It takes only a moment because you have the power. But chilling is just making it fade away.
PS: Intuition is an exciting feeling and certainly rewarding if you chose to listen.
