Motivation: Help with Decision Making

Making decisions isn’t always easy but it’s a part of living and thriving. Some tips to motivate you to make decisions and set intentions in love and career.

I returned to NYC from Los Angeles with a mind full of mush. Some thoughts made sense while others I was still trying to decipher.

There are many decisions to be made, including how and when I will make a permanent move to La La Land. Then there are bigger things at hand. Decisions, decisions that I must make regarding my career.

I have been open about what I want to do with my professional life. I have been patient and impatient. I have been impulsive and wise. And now I am CLEAR. How I am positioning myself matters. How we present ourselves is directly correlated to how we are perceived and treated, professionally and personally.

If you believe you are valuable then you present yourself as a person of value. In turn, others will treat you as valuable.

Take writing for free, as an example. So many of us have done it for bylines and media hits and others still do. I took a stand against it not too long ago. I will no longer partake in free labor.

My talent is valuable therefore it will be treated and respected  as a talent of value.

So, no more saying, “Yes,” to opportunities just because they are shiny and new. Before nodding your head impulsively, as I’ve often done, ask yourself the following:

  • What am I getting out of this, if anything at all?
  • How will this benefit me or hurt me professionally in the long run?
  • How does this connect with my master plan?
  • Am I being valued?

Once you’ve answered these questions, you will decide wisely. You, as a professional, will understand how and if an opportunity will work for you and what you want professionally. Because decisions, decisions are easier to make once we clarify who we are, what we want, and what we need to get there.
