Choose with No Regret

first posted in January 2008

 

My New Year's resolution is to choose with no regret, and I've spent the last 2 weeks writing draft after draft of this newsletter because I couldn't decide how best to motivate you for the New Year.  So I will take my own advice: keep it simple and choose this draft, with minor editorial changes, of course, to send out.

 

 

 

Clutter is postponed decisions.

 

 

 

 

 

You may keep things because you don't want to make the wrong decision. You don't want to hear the dreaded words "I knew I should have kept it."

 

I challenge you here and now to make as many decisions as possible in the coming year and celebrate the 'wrong' as well as the right decisions. Because the more you decide, the better your decisions will be. What's the worst possible thing that could happen if you choose to let go of some object or some piece of paper? I'm pretty sure no one will die if you let go of that 3-year-old magazine, that broken lamp or those pants that never really fit.

 

Take a stand and make a decision to let go of one thing. Tomorrow, do it again, and again the next day. Soon you will choose with no regrets.

 

I found my resolution in the following poem from mary anne radmacher:

 

 

Whether you make a New Year's resolution or find other ways to stay motivated, make sure you have some fun and enjoy life.
