As you are walking down the corridor at work, you turn the corner and there in front of you… on a silver platter… is a plate full of brownies. They stare back at you, covered in their powdered sugar glory. They taunt you with ever step. You know you want one, but the 700 calories of sugar, flour, and oil will surely ruin your diet.
What do you do…???
You are in the check-out line at your favorite hardware store and you notice on the shelf to the left the All in Wonder Tool Set. This just isn’t any tool set… no… the tools in this set can fix that leaky faucet, hang the new curtains, and magically fix the broken sliding glass door. This is the solution to your problems… but at $295 it might just break your budget… better pull out the credit card…
What do you do..???
The holidays have been rough and you notice the spare tire growing around your middle (too many brownies?). All of a sudden a new infomercial comes on the TV for the save-all, end-all, exercise system. This baby has it all, power rods, adjustable seat, multi function, and four easy payments of $199. Just four easy payments… you glance at your gut and then reach for the phone and your wallet.
What do you do…???
The impulse to do something right now is overwhelming. You need to make a decision and make it now. Do you brush off that small little voice that says you shouldn’t do it and grab the credit card…???
Or do you…
Count To Ten
Do you take this simple step and give yourself time to think… to make a logical decision… to match the decision with your budget and with your goals…
Or do you fire the impulse and just go for it… and worry about it tomorrow.
Do You… Count to Ten or Count the Pounds?
Do You… Count to Ten or Count the Credit Card Bills?
Do You… Count to Ten or Count the Calls from the Loan Company?
It’s Your Decision…
Once you Count to Ten you may want to use the Desktop Decision Maker to help you make the right choice.
Just remember… you’ll thank yourself in January for your thoughtful decisions today. 🙂
