Pausing before choosing

When we’re overwhelmed, most of us cope by putting some of our choices on auto-pilot and by making quick decisions on other things. In my experience, it’s incredibly easy to end up in a situation that looks like that of most people around us but doesn’t feel right at all (wait a minute, I never wanted to be a property manager! how did I get so out of shape? where did all this stuff come from?).

It doesn’t have to be that way.

If you’re looking for a tool to help you make decisions differently, check out this list published by Twin Cities blogger Anthony Ongaro of 20 questions you can ask yourself to live more intentionally. Here’s a sample:

  • Will this get us closer to our lifestyle goals?
  • Will this create more or less demands on our time and energy?
  • Will this contribute to potential costs or financial burdens in the future?
  • Will this matter to us in 10 years?
