What’s the best decision you’ve ever made?

We’re always one decision away from significant change in our lives. We have free will to think and act in a way that we see fit in life. And with that free will we are essentially artists. The decisions we make every day are how we sculpt our clay into a beautiful work of art. No matter how small and slight the stroke, every decision slowly crafts the life we want to have one day. It’s important that we’re deliberate with each and every one of those decisions. We’re always one decision from getting closer to who we want to be as a person. But we’re also always one decision away from being the person we hope to avoid. So we need to be careful and take the time to audit our decisions often. You should replicate the good decisions and forget the old ones. So what’s the best decision you’ve ever made? Here’s a short story on the best decision I’ve ever made. I was walking back from class and thought to myself, “That was pointless.” I loved learning new things and expanding my knowledge. But as of late it was these walks back across the university campus that made me realize I wasn’t engaged. The spark wasn’t there anymore and it was time to switch things up. Then I snapped back into reality as I focused in on my phone buzzing in my pocket. It was Dwayne. He was calling me with what at the time was great news! We had got an offer from a startup in Miami. We had been going through this rigorous application process for months now, trying to be one in tens of thousands that got fexible job offers to work alongside the founders of top tech startups. And after all that work we made it. They agreed to fly us out to Miami, pay us for the week, and give us a hands on orientation with the company. It was amazing. We got to live in the middle of Midtown Miami for a week. We got to work with talented coworkers and mesh with the team. We were personally mentored by the founder of the startup. And it was just an overall great experience being immersed in the startup culture. At the endz they offered me and Dwayne two individual generous offers that most college graduates don’t get for years. But ultimately, we made the decision to decline and focus. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Decisions, decisions, decisions!
