As an exercise I will post each day one of Dale Carnegie’s How to Stop Worrying and Start Living rules. This book was written in the 30s and is still of great popularity. The book offers a set of practical formulas to help overcome worry which are said to last a lifetime.
Hope you’ll enjoy it and get some worry less enlightenment.
Rule #5 Carefully analyse the facts, come to a decision and act.
After you gathered all the facts, it is time to weigh them up. It is good to spend some time on this considering the options and pros & contras. Once analysed, come to a decision and act.
It is helpful to write out and answer the below questions:
- What is the problem?
- What is the cause of the problem?
- What are all the possible solutions?
- What is the best solution?
Once you have reached a decision, get active to carry out the decision…and dismiss all the anxiety about the outcome. The decision is taken, there is turning back and only moving forward.
