The choice to praise your colleague.
To answer that phone call.
To re-prioritize the things that matter.
To wake up earlier.
To go to the gym.
To not take that bite.
To not succumb to that crippling fear.
To open up and be more vulnerable.
To move to another city.
To take that job offer.
To start guitar lessons.
To stop smoking.
No matter the situation, there are important decisions to be made at all junctures.
Some are big life decisions while others seem subtle and meaningless.
I’ve learned, at this point in my life, that every decision counts. That’s because the art of trying is underestimated and our lives always add up to the sum of all of the small decisions we make.
