Rx: When You Don’t Know What To Do

Rx: When You Don’t Know What To Do

There are times in our lives when we are at a standstill. We are at a crossroads that requires us to make choices, and we don’t know what to do.

At these times, I remember some good advice I once received. “Never make a decision until you have at least three choices, one of which may be totally unacceptable.”

Here are some suggestions I have found helpful for this process.

  • Get a good night’s sleep.
  • Retreat into silence in your sacred space.
  • Ask for help.
  • Listen.
  • Make a list of possible choices.
  • Make a list of pros and cons.
  • Consider the consequences of each.
  • Consult with a trusted friend or professional.
  • Pay attention to your feelings.
  • Pay attention to your intuition.
  • Be willing to wait until you know what to do.
  • When you know what to do, do it and move on.
