making a decision | part IV
St Ignatius believed that our imaginations are where we meet the divine. Whether you believe that or not using your imagination can be a powerful tool to you help you make a difficult decision.
Here are two exercises you can do using your imagination,
First, imagine that a stranger comes to you and asks for your advice. They need to make the exact same decision you need to make, they tell you all about it in detail, why they are considering each option and what the pros and cons are. What would you say, what advice would you give this stranger?
Tony Robbins would ask, but if you did know the answer what would that answer be?
Second, imagine that you are at the end of your life, how would you feel about this decision looking back?
These are two powerful exercises to help guide your choice.
Get skin in the game, use your imagination.
