The latest installment in Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s series on fear-based decisions is out.
In it, she poses a few important questions to ask yourself when you’re confronted with a major decision.
The first is whether you’re making the decision out of fear or with an eye toward growth — not necessarily improvement, since your situation can be perfectly fine as it stands, but growth.
The subsequent ones are about whether the correct decision is one that grows your business or helps you yourself grow, or whether it holds you back.
It’s important to note that whether you’re deciding based on fear or growth, you likely will feel nervous, but Rusch differentiates the sensation of nervousness out of knowing or suspecting it’s the wrong decision from the sensation of nervousness out of excitement at a decision’s potential.
Read the leadup to and context for these reflections on fear-based versus growth-based decision making in her latest business musings blog post.
