DAVIDSON: God Gave You An Inner Voice: Listen To It

Why do we over-complicate so many decisions?

With so many options, so much news, and too many choices bombarding us in our over-information society, we often waste time analyzing decisions when our intuition or inner voice can usually pinpoint the most effective and useful choice.

The most efficient decisions made often are the decisions that are made the quickest. The fastest way to make decisions involves using your instincts, or intuition. You’re already pretty good at this, if for no other reason than you’ve come this far in life. If you want to develop your powers of choosing based on instinct to a finer edge, start a log. Write down your intuitive choice before making any final decision. Then, when enough time has passed to see the results of your more analytical decision, write them down and compare them to the results from your intuitive choice.

Logging choices enables you to track the accuracy of your intuition without forsaking your traditional decision-making procedure. As time passes, you’ll begin to notice how frequently your intuitive choices were good ones, and find yourself relying on your intuition more easily and more often. Once you get cooking, you can bypass the realms of data and information that previously impeded your ability to choose. You can call upon your still, quiet, faithful, internal guidance system.

Do you have a dentist? How did you select your dentist? Did you seek dentists via Google? Did you call the ten to twelve dentists nearest you, and based on the call decide to visit five to seven, and in visiting their offices, discuss with them their billing procedures, background and expertise, competency of their staff, office hours, prices, and overall philosophy?

Then, did you whittle down the list to maybe two or three, perhaps call them back or visit on another occasion, do some background checking as to the reputation of the doctor, his or her longevity in the community, and professional standing? Then, and only then, did you decide on dentist A? Or, did you choose a dentist based on whom your parents or friends see, or where some referral service sent you, or simply the clever ad you saw online?

You probably used the latter method. You didn’t stop and analyze which dentist would be best for you: You picked a dentist by hook or by crook, and if that particular dentist didn’t work out, you switched once or twice. In short, you used a combination of references and intuitive processes to come up with your dentist.

Why then, do you overcomplicate so many decisions at work and in the rest of your life? When you choose based on intuition, every cell in your body and every shred of intelligence you’ve ever accumulated is brought to bear. There’s a lot behind the solutions you make. Pay attention to your small, inner voice; the one bestowed by God. It’s there to support you, if you listen to it.
New information is only going to hit you faster and faster as your life proceeds. You’re only going to be able to absorb and use a fraction of what you’re exposed to. Suppose you want to get information on a particular type of product. You’re not going to find five or ten articles, chances are you can identify dozens of articles or more – with more information than you can handle. You’re going to have to trust your instincts.

Blasting Through Procrastination

When faced with too much information or too many decisions, your natural inclination is to procrastinate. Don’t beat yourself up; lots of people face this today. Decisions that would normally roll off your back become more involved when there’s too much on your plate. Here’s a list of ways to creatively break through the procrastination that stops you from effective decision making:

*Face Procrastination Head-On – What is blocking you? What is the real reason you don’t want to choose? Write it down or record it. This exercise alone may dislodge something and help you to decide.

*Choose to Easily Begin – Make a positive affirmation of yourself, such as: “I can easily make this decision.” This powerful affirmation is often enough.

*Find the Easy Entry Points – Ask yourself, “What are three to five things I could do to progress toward the final decision, without actually tackling it head-on?” Then initiate these “easy entry” activities. Often, they are enough to get you fully involved.

*Set Up Your Desk for a Decision – Set up your desk or office to enable you to focus on the decision at hand, and ignore other less important matters. This might involve neatly arranging papers, file folders, reports, and other items, while working at a clear desk, with only the issue at hand in front of you.

Biden Policies Keep Migrant Kids Away From Parents ‘For Weeks,’ In ‘Facilities Akin to Jail’

How come nobody on the Left seems to care, though!?

Donald Trump was roasted by Hollywood elites and the mainstream media for his treatment of migrant children at the border. Biden has done absolutely nothing different, yet for some reason there isn’t 24/7 coverage. This is why nobody can trust the MSM. Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Democrat President Joe Biden is reportedly putting migrant children in detention facilities that resemble prisons and is separating the children for weeks on end—both issues that Democrats and the media used to attack former President Donald Trump during Trump’s presidency. “The number of unaccompanied migrant children detained along the southern border has tripled in the last two weeks to more than 3,250, filling facilities akin to jails as the Biden administration struggles to find room for them in shelters,” The New York Times reported. “The children are being held in facilities, managed by the Customs and Border Protection agency, that were built for adults. The border agency has been the subject of widespread criticism for the horrific conditions in its federal detention facilities, in which children are exposed to disease, hunger and overcrowding.” […] USA Today reported over the weekend that Biden was “still sheltering children separated from close family members in federal facilities for weeks on end – something immigrant advocates and attorneys had hoped the new administration would resolve by now.” The report noted in its headline that children were being “being separated from relatives for weeks” under Biden. https://twitter.com/benshapiro/status/1369082740805689344 And here’s some random news from Twitter… https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1369033404612771843 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1369079628950867972 https://twitter.com/EtanSmallman/status/1368832580842315778 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1369050996039680000 https://twitter.com/trscoop/status/1369000999994724353

Officers knocked on their door. And knocked. And knocked. For anywhere between 30 and 90 seconds, they knocked. When the cops entered the apartment, Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend opened fire. An officer was injured. Could’ve died, even. But it’s all about “white privilege,” right!? From The Hill: A judge on Monday ruled that charges against Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, for shooting a Louisville, Ky., police officer would be permanently dropped. Jefferson Circuit Judge Olu Stevens declared that the charges against Walker would be dismissed with prejudice preventing him from being charged with the March 13 incident that resulted in his girlfriend’s death, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Walker had fired a single shot at police, striking Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly in the leg, as three plainclothes officers executed a search warrant in Taylor’s apartment. He was charged with assault and attempted murder of a police officer. Walker posted this on Instagram… View this post on Instagram A post shared by Kenneth Walker (@k.walker_502) Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
