Our choices tip other choices closer or further away from us. “It’s just one cookie” is a choice further from our fitness goals. “I’ll call her later” is a choice away from a business goal. “200 words on my book today is plenty” is a choice away from your publishing goal.
Your decisions do have follow on effects. Tip over one decision and it’ll knock all your dominoes off onto new patterns.
~from Decisions are Dominoes by Chris Brogan
And that got me thinking about some of the decisions I’d made in my life.
Occasionally the bad decisions will swim around in my head a bit. A memory that pops into my mind out of nowhere… a remembrance… Not regret, mind you, because I believe “mistakes” aren’t mistakes, but rather learning experiences. More of a reminder of the lesson learned.
