All You Have To Do Is Decide…

All you've got to do is decide to go and the hardest part is over. #MondayMotivation

All you have to do is decide to go and the hardest part is over.

Tony Wheeler

Do you have big plans?  Grand ideas? A whole bunch of adventures and memories waiting to be had and made?

So…when are you going to do something about them?

Are you just talking about doing these things?  Talk is cheap.  Everyone can talk about what they’re going to do.  I do suppose talking about something is the first step…  Then you need to decide to do it.  Deciding may be the part holding us back.

[Tweet “Decide and the hardest part is over. #mondaymotivation”]

What goes into decision making?  In short, I think it takes a healthy dose of two things: intuition and reasoning.


Your “gut” feeling.  Letting your heart and emotions have a say in what you’re doing.  I tend to start here before I even think about letting myself get too involved.


Reasoning does account for a few things: your knowledge, information gathering and whether your sources are credible.

Think of this as your pro/con gathering stage.

Once you’ve put together what you know, what you’ve collected and verified that it all makes sense, you can make a solid decision.

What decision will you make today?

Reflections From Me

  1. I am so crap at actually doing things, I have a big list of things I want to do/achieve but nothing ever gets done. I’m so worried about failing or not being good enough but there are things I should just do anyway, I will never know what will happen if I don’t even try. Your post has got me feeling all inspired, thank you :) xx #mg

    1. Say it, decide to do it, make a plan and ATTACK IT! You can do it Wendy. Start small, the ball will start rolling. thanks for stopping by!

  2. I LOVE this! I am terrible for making lists and plans and never managing to fulfil them! Life always seems to get in the way, or should that read KIDS seem to get in the way, and my own plans most definitely get put on the back burner! I’m going to try to motivate myself a little more and be more ambitious! Thanks for this! #mg

    1. Rotten kids getting in the way! Just kidding, sort of ;) Make that time! You can’t be the best you for your kids if you’re not enhancing and growing yourself. =)

  3. Great post. Really inspiring. Thank you, I needed a bit of a kick up the arse

    1. Mac, that means so much to me. These posts have been hard for me to write lately. Feel like I’m pulling it out of no where and not really satisfied with them… but your words make me feel better =)

  4. Intuition is a huge part of my life. I believe we can all be inspired and led by what we feel to be right. I think it gives us courage to move forward. Nice post.
