Chronic Choices

Bill Murray said,”Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that you are stupid and make bad decisions.”

Murray is hilarious, and he is also right. I have made stupid decisions that were bad for me; I still do from time to time.

The real thing you need to watch out for, however, are chronic choices. A chronic choice is a poor decision we default to day after day after day. Theses dumb decisions are so very bad for us precisely because we make them habitually.

Because these chronic choices have significant repercussions for our futures, it’s worth taking the time to try and identify them. Spend some time today evaluating your daily decisions. Can you locate a chronic choice or two in your life? And if so, how can you correct it? 
Reassess your daily decisions on a regular basis. What you do daily defines you. Remember; you are right now experiencing the compounding effects of your cumulative days lived.
