Take Charge of Your Thought Habits

Sign with Possibilities Good Thought Habits Lead to Better Decisions

Too frequently we go with the first explanation that gets a matter out of our awareness, gives us a temporary benefit, answers a longing, or that seems to eliminate a threat or be okay. Wisdom is the ability to judge the difference between what might be okay and what is correct. Information and decisions come at us faster than we can file them or make decisions about them. While we can rethink them we rarely do; there are just too many. But if we don’t examine each one we are building our future on a foundation of sloppy thoughts.     We can make the speed and accuracy of our judgments far better if we:

 

 

  • Favor long term benefits over immediate gains in almost all situations
  • Have a plan for life that we love
  • Have a solid grasp on what is right and wrong
  • Have a close relationship with God
  • Intend to do the right thing always
  • consider the interests of all others involved
  • Avoid people and situations that put us at risk.
