Part of the struggle in making a decision depends on whether we are focused on being clear or being certain. Let me explain ….

Clarity is knowing what we want and taking the steps one by one working towards the goal. This allows the process to unfold as opportunities and ideas present themselves. Always keeping us moving in the direction we want to go.

Certainty is when we prevent ourselves from moving forward because before we are willing to take action we feel the need to be certain of how we are going to achieve the desired goal. There are no guarantees so waiting on certainty to provide the exact how leaves us stuck and not moving forward.

Example
Say you want to be debt free.

At first you may not know everything to achieve your goal. Though you likely have some ideas writing these down are a good start. You are now taking action on achieving your goal which makes you open minded to additional ideas, strategies, steps that will lead you to your goal.
