Are you struggling to make a hard decision?
Do you find it difficult to make simple choices, like what to eat for breakfast?
Does the word “decision” make you cringe?
Consider the picture above, which path would you take:
Smooth dirt or Bumpy rocks?
The smooth dirt path might be easier, however the bumpy path can help an individual learn, grow, and become more resilient.
In Philosopher Ruth Chang’s TED Talk, How to Make Hard Choices, she discusses why some choices are so difficult and what it means for the human condition. Big decisions can be an agonizingly challenge, but it is because we think about them the wrong way. Chang provides a powerful new framework to shape who we truly are as human beings.
