Global in Perspective

If you’re a teenager and you’re told to make a decision, you will embrace the adolescent mindset of wanting to go to parties and hang out with friends, a generally immature mentality that I refer to as limited in perspective. 

If you’re an adult and you’re given an important choice to make, you’ll be rather (often overly) mature about the way you weigh your options.

When I make important decisions, I think I try to be really mature about everything, but often that’s not a realistic representation. I believe (more) in the concept of being “global in perspective.”

Would you like to play the game of five? Consider a decision; consider the repercussions of this choice in 5 days? 5 weeks? months? years? If you’re concerned about a negative consequence that might result, decide the importance of such an outcome. I seldom realize how minuscule a seemingly-disastrous outcome would be until I think about it in the span of a few years.

I’ll reason through a major decision. I’ll consider how it affects everyone I know, but mainly myself. You are, ultimately, the center of your world, having lived in your body and seen from your perspective, and your perspective only.

Daily Prompt: How are you more likely to make an important decision — by reasoning through it, or by going with your gut?
