I am slightly embarrassed to admit that I have often avoided making decisions throughout my life. That’s not to say that I haven’t made things happen but I have often avoided putting my foot down and choosing a path one way or the other, preferring instead to allow circumstances to make the decision myself. That’s not to say that I haven’t subconsciously pushed circumstances one way or another, but it’s not the same and does not give you the same benefits as being decisive and telling the world what you want.
The thing is that an argument could be made that the whole point of life is to make decisions (if we take any spiritual questions out of the equation). The biological definition of life is that ‘life is irritable’ meaning that the environment does something and life does something back. This is true for all life – a plant decides on some level to move towards the light and if it were to stop doing it, it would die. The same is true for us on a much more complex level. If we were to stop making decisions, we would not get up, eat or drink and we would soon die.
