When it’s in the air you’ll know what side you’re hoping for.

Whether or not you have that realization, I do think flipping a coin is a great way to make a decision.

So often, we try to make logical decisions. We have decision making frameworks and processes that we follow. And that’s great, there’s nothing wrong with that.

Except when it hinders us from actually deciding and moving forward.

It’s very easy to get stuck in the decision making framework. We have so many choices, and we’re so desperate to not make the wrong choice, that in the end, we make no choice at all.

But in life, very often, there’s no real one right choice. Most of the time, any path you choose can work – once you’re committed to that path and put in the effort to make it work.

The act of choosing – diving in, committing to a path, and going down that path – is often more important than what the choice is.

So the next time you’re stuck on what to do, flip a coin. Maybe you’ll realize what you’re hoping for. Or maybe you’ll realize you’re not particularly hoping for either outcome, because it doesn’t really matter. And all that truly matters is you make a decision and take a step (no matter how small) forward.
