the Infinite Monkey speaks: on decisions
Random brilliance from across the blogosphere…
I hope if anything this has inspired you to pay attention to your decision making process, and realize that with every decision you make you are sculpting your future. The question is “Is the future you’re sculpting on a daily basis the future you truly want?”

Every act counts, doesn’t it? All those small actions are chiseling in the features and details, so we need to pay attention.
I’m trying to do just that.
Me too! I spent a lot of my life just going with the flow and not paying attention. But the years go by so fast! I’m trying now to pay attention and make better decisions, to be proactive with my life and take it where I want it to go.
So true. The little everyday details, the things we do and say, make up who we are, who we become. The grand gestures may be showy and get some immediate attention, but it is the day to day living that makes us who we are.
Yes! And it’s harder than it sounds to focus and get control of those little everyday details. It’s so easy to let my moods get the better of me, or my self-centeredness or just being busy and distracted. I don’t always notice when I’m not being as nice as I should be, as understanding or forgiving. All of those things add up over time until I’m bitter and resentful or irritable as a habit.
Oh, boy, so true! Sometimes I really hear myself and feel like crawling under a rock! Like, I’ll be a good person just as soon as I get past this SLOW CAR!……ahem. Was that me???
That’s funny, because I’ve been thinking about that kind of thing a lot lately as I drive. I can be either impatient with whoever is in front of me or irritated with whoever is behind me. But I’ve been trying to be better recently.
