Imagine you are a tourist in New York City and you want to get to the Empire State Building. You don’t speak the language, don’t understand the street signs and can’t ask. Scared that, if you keep walking, you could go the wrong way, you just stand there on the corner, waiting for you don’t know what.
This is indecision.
We all know this situation. You don’t know quite what to do so you don’t do anything for fear of doing the wrong thing. Metaphorically, you stay stuck on the corner.
But here is the thing. When you are in New York City and looking for the Empire State Building, if you walk any distance at all in any direction, you will eventually get to a place where you can see it. Then, you just walk towards what you see.
Life is like that sometimes. You can’t see the route to where you want to go from where you are. But if you just start moving–even if it turns out to be in the wrong direction–you will eventually change your vantage point, see your destination and know your path.
So don’t stay stuck on your corner. Just start walking. Even if you go the “wrong” way, the right route will appear.
