I invented this rule for myself to be applied to every decision I might have to make in the future.
I would sort out all the arguments and see which belonged to fear and which to creativeness, and other things being equal I would make the decision which had the larger number of creative reasons on its side.
I think it must be a rule something like this that makes jonquils and crocuses come pushing through cold mud. –Katherine Butler Hathaway
Ethical decisions are usually hard to make.
There is so much to consider, so many pros and cons that it’s so easy to get confused, we let others make decisions for us, or we make decisions by not deciding.
I would like to try to make my next decision based on Hathaway’s guideline: Move away from fear and toward creativity. I would only add compassion.
How does that work for you?
