December 10 - Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? (Author: Susannah Conway)
I made a choice in 2009 that I came to regret soon after. I thought then - and I still do - that I was making the right choice at that time. That I really had no better option available at that time.
Timing is so crucial and this choice was all about timing.
In 2010, my regret over my decision led to serious thoughts of breaking an important commitment. As with any tough decision, there were pros and cons to both sides.
I ended up sticking with my commitment. I saw it through to the end and gave my best effort to fulfilling my obligations. I went above and beyond to the fullest extent that I could.
In doing so, I maintained a positive reputation that is and always will be important to me. It was a wise choice and I’m glad I persevered. Quitting might have been expedient or easy, but seeing it through made me feel that I’d accomplished something and grown in the process.
