A Quick Solution to Being Stuck in Dilemma

woman stuck in dilemma questioning


Back in the old days, when I worked as an employee, I had a boss that would often get stuck when facing a decision. The voices fighting for each option in his head would keep his mind spinning and paralyze him at the same time.

Sound familiar? It happens to me too.

My former employer would keep talking to me about whatever the issue was, but just could not move forward.  He was knee deep in dilemma.

Until I found the magic question.

Do you want to know what it was?  The simple, 7 word question I discovered is:

“What is the right thing to do?”

This question works for two reasons:

  • It interrupts the spinning pattern in your mind and gives it another assignment.
  • Doing the right thing is almost always the right choice.

Our minds can make even simple questions complicated, sometimes overwhelming.

But, now you have a solution for your puzzling moments.

Go ahead. Give it a try and let me know how it goes …

    I’ve come across the same question myself, about what is the “right thing to do” or what I like to call, “being a grown up.” It sure takes all the guesswork out of touch decision making.
