Are you at a crossroads in life? Believe it or not, we all are…many times … every day!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

We face crossroads every day in lifeIt is easy to recognize the BIG decisions in life. Changing jobs or purchasing a home have obvious implications on the big picture that is our future.

But what about the small choices that we make each and every day? Although seemingly flying under the radar, they can be life altering without as much as a second thought.

It could be something as simple as choosing to make a phone call or deciding to follow-up on some old information. Choosing to spend our time on productive activities may very well lead to some surprising results.

The funny thing is that you don’t know the outcome of any choice until it has played out. It is only after the fact that you can look back and say “I’m sure glad that I went in that direction!”

And maybe … just maybe … it will make the choice an easier one the next time around!

Good morning, Richard.....making the choice to go forth and do the task is the first step, and if it comes out well, then that positive conditioning makes the task a consistent one.....hopefully!!!!

You are right - every day, every action and every inaction has an impact that can change a life.

The only thing I know is that I have choices. How they come out is always going to be a mystery.

There are times we head in one direction to only be the wrong road. Then, we have to take another road to achived success. That is OK. Just make a decision to move forward.

Richard, So true, I've been pleasantly surprised when I make a phone call that I debated in my head. I have bee at crossroads and taken the wrong turn as well, but if you keep going sometimes the road loops around and you can get back on track. OK enough mush out of me off to make some calls.

Richard, Great photo and topic.  It often crosses my mind how many little things have to align "just so" to put us where we are at any given moment.

Richard - Go left, go right, go straight ahead or go back from where I came from, decisions I have to make everyday.  Hopefully, I made the right one and if I did not then the go back and start over decision is the best.  Thanks for the blog.

Not knowing where those choices will lead to is why I like those science fiction shows with time travelers screwing things up.

Good morning Richard,

We don't always analyze the choices we make up front.  Sometimes they are the ones that have the greatest impact on our lives too.

I've personally reached crossroads on a few things in my life .. recent empty nester, do we downsize and where to move, building my business to the next level, etc.  All decisions deserve a lot of thoughtful consideration of the next step and what to do.  Love the visual with your post!

Great post.  We can always change directions if it is the wrong decision.  Think positively and attract the proper road, so that we don't have to change directions.

Very profound post. Often we only know if it was the right decision after it is irreversible.
