One life, many choices, joys and pains

That's right we only have one life and from the moment we are asked to make decisions, each one of them will invariably lead to joy or pain.

If we are less fortunate and have few choices in life, we may either feel trapped or simply content because things are the way they are and there isn't a thing - we think – that we could do to change them. That's right, in choice-less situation, ignorance maybe bliss.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, too many choices might lead at worst to “decision paralysis” or in most cases at making some good and some bad choices. Since we seem to learn more from bad choices than good ones, we should strive at making as many decisions as possible so we can develop some expertise in that so important skill.

The problem is that we often get stung by the first decision we make that happens to turn bad and from that point forward, we don't dare to proceed any further. I'd say that on the whole, making many decisions is the best path in turning choosing into second-nature instinct.

Embrace all the results fully, the good and the bad and you'll move forward and it will prove to you that the more choices you make, the better you get at it and the better your life becomes!
