The best thing about this U.S. election is…
…it’s almost over.
Just a few more weeks to go. Then we can move from anxiety about what might happen to adjusting to what did happen.
This is important for us humans. We do our worst when we’re in limbo, that agonizing waiting period when we’re bent over backwards, worrying about what’s next. We do our best, however, when we know the outcome of a decision, and now we need to adjust ourselves to the new reality.
This is why it’s important to deliberate less, and decide more. It’s certainly okay to take a little time, and do a little investigation, before making a decision. But the most successful among us have learned to set a deadline on that deliberation, and just make a decision.
Then we can move forward.
Peace begins with pause,
