Aug 26, 2013 - Too focused on the easier way? Could always choosing the easier way to do or approach something be holding you back? Are you feeling unfulfilled in your work or your life? Are you feeling unchallenged or discontent with where you are compared to where you want to be? Whenever you are faced with two or more options in how to approach something, or two or more choices in how you proceed forward, don't just consider the easiest option or choice, because it may not be the right one. Especially when someone else is also going to be impacted, consider what choice can be the best way to achieve the best outcome for you and for them.
Take an MM&I Moment to ask yourself if you have fallen victim to making choices to avoid challenges, controversy, disfavor or having to work harder for the end result because it was easier than having to cope with what you would need to overcome. List any instances like this and consider the potential of igniting the possibilities again by choosing to move forward based on what is best and right, versus what was easier. When you consistently take action based from the viewpoint of the best possible outcomes and what is the right thing to do, you will be amazed at how much this approach will be rewarded with new opportunities, unexpected support and internal gratification and satisfaction.
