Recently, I was putting off some crucial decisions about how I wanted to move forward in my life. And it’s not that I haven’t been looking at the issues and contemplating what I wanted. But I felt stuck. Then, I came across a question in Wendy Craig-Purcell’s book “Ask Yourself This“, and realised my dilemma. I was mixing up problem-solving with decision-making.
The question she asked as “If I could solve the “how”, what would I do?” Continue reading How to separate decision-making from problem-solving
When you are afraid of learning from your failure and mistakes, you stay within your comfort zone – where you already know what you need to know to survive. What you want – and don’t have – is not within your comfort zone.

Keeping a focused vision on your dreams and goals and then executing them, requires more than just clarity of purpose.
