Choose Wisely

One of the quotes I remember from the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade movie comes from a Knight in a cave after Indiana Jones drinks from the chalice that gives eternal life.  (Now that would be a nervous moment.)

After Indiana nervously sips the Knight says “You have chosen wisely”.

We don’t have a wise knight to tell us that each day but it is a good reminder to take some time before making important decisions.

Tips to making wise decisions:

1) Be patient
2) Stay calm
3) Consult trusted friends
4) Examine the situation and the long term ramifications of some of the decisions we have to make.
5) Take responsibility for your decision.

The decisions we make will not only affect us personally but those that we work with, lead, and serve.

Choose Wisely!

I’m cheering for you.
