thanks everyone, for the topic on decisions.
thank you Kay, for your written expression that helped many of us…
thank you Peter, another wonderful poem.
Decisions, Decisions, Decisions.

Time to consider my position
Before I make my decision.
To draw up my actions
That will be a map of my reactions.

A pause for introspection
Looking for some direction,
A chance for more choices,
Options from other voices.

Firmness in sticking to my purpose
Delving deeper under the surface.
Seeking, deliberating, determining
A resolution from persevering.

Strengthening my resolve
To keep to my goals.
Accepting, acknowledging, my fallibility
Being persistent with my certainty.

Feelings and emotions digested
Thoughts diagnosed injected.
Finding the right directives,
Objective or subjective in perspective.

Positive and negative outcomes weighed,
My future course will be layered and made.
If my decision is Yes, No or Maybe,
This mystery will be left to history.

And now for the expression from the session…

Maybe is a time based concept… is maybe a decision?

If you don’t make a decision – the decision may be made for you

If you don’t make it in time… you may not ever get the chance to choose

Maybe is a holding pattern…

It is time based…

It can be valuable or it might not be…

Nigel at the Colonel Light, at Light Square looking towards Montefiore Hill..

All about the squares….

Victoria Square and Whitmore Square… yes that’s cafe outside the square!!

That was Nigel’s decision – people may need to think outside the square… to make decisions…

It’s the uncertainty of what the decisions bring…

In organisations it’s about opportunity costs…

If you choose A you can’t choose B, therefore there is a gain, there is a cost…

There may be a risk either way…

Choose with your heart… following your heart…

The heart has an emotional attachment…
the mind comes up with too many possibilities,

People don’t expect you to use your heart in business…
they may say naive but is it…

The two can work together… the head and the heart…

The consequences…

Is this the right thing for me…

Hard when you know it may let someone else down…

Make a choice that helps you in life in some way…

Don’t let it destroy you… the stewing

Making decisions for others instead of yourself – can be negative…

The outcome of choices that you feel is a wrong choice… when you don’t let go… can lead to regret…

Sometimes we are stuck with our choices… and please be with it until you can make another decision down the track…

Accept we sometimes make decisions, that we can’t turn back…

Within a decision are other decisions and choices that can make the first decision feel not so bad…

When emotional intelligence is low… sometimes it can affect choices

Growing and expressing and learning can always happen at another time… there is hope

You can actually go back on your decision – when your heart was burning for something different – thanks Kay for the stroy

Not the choice of others… yours – it’s not about them.

When you act on it – it feels euphoric – so good to have made the decision…

Be happy and confident with your choices…

When we are at a ‘cross’ road… let’s change it to a ‘happy’ road
