Career Advice

Throughout your career, you’ll have to make decisions. Big decisions. Do I take that job? (What if it’s terrible?) Do I move across the country for that promotion? (What if my family hates it?) Does my team go left or right? (What if we lose the company a ton of money?)

But here is something to consider… are you ready? Decisions aren’t permanent. Say it with me now: Decisions aren’t permanent! With the exception of choosing to have a kid, decisions can be changed. They’re not forever!

According to psychologist Jennifer Guttman, “When you take the pressure off of yourself that there’s a right or wrong way to do something, that should liberate you from the challenge of trying to determine if there’s a right way or a wrong way to do something.”

And there’s an added benefit to trusting yourself to make a good choice. Guttman continues, “When people start to make decisions on their own, it builds self-esteem and self-confidence. The first step in building your self-confidence is to realize that you can’t make a mistake as long as you’re trying to be authentic with yourself.”
