Sometimes You Just Have To Go For It

There are going to be times in life when you sit around or stand around (whatever situation you are in) and contemplate about a choice – whether you should make it or not, whether you should go for it or not.

Planning and carefully considering your moves is not a bad thing, it is in fact a great way to save yourself a lot of time. The thing about planning is that it gets you into your head too much which in some cases could be a very negative consequence.

The more we think or analyze the more output we generate which we feed BACK  into our analysis. This is a vicious cycle which at the end leaves us paralyzed and at that point we have no idea what to do or where to go. Have you ever had that? I have.

There are time in life when you just have to GO FOR IT – like a shark. I don’t know how to describe those times because it is very unique to everyone’s own life experience – all I am here to tell you is that not everything needs to be perfectly calculated.

Spontaneity is a beautiful thing when not used ALL the time – everything is good in moderation as you already know. Once again there are going to be times in your life (whether rarely or frequently it depends on your own life) when you would need to stand up, take a deep breath and then just go for it with an empty mind fully trusting the moment.

This article wasn’t meant to be long – just wanted to share how I started feeling these couple of months. I used to be a meticulous calculator of every single event in my life, but due to some recent changes in my behavior I have started integrating spontaneity as a part of my life.

What are some times in YOUR life when you had to make spontaneous decisions? When do you think spontaneity is necessary and when do you think it could be dangerous?

Let’s discuss :)

    Very motivational piece. I would agree go for it! It might work out it might not but you won’t know unless to do it! For example I took up a job and after 3 months of just getting settled and finding my feet there, I got a new job offer. Did the 2 interviews and got offered the job! Obviously on the one hand I was thinking stay where I am and grow with that company and friends that you already met or on the other side start work with this new company that I never heard of. On the plus its was more money in my pocket every month. After much deliberation I took the job and I have been there 6 months and BEST DECISION I ever made!!!!! GO FOR IT! :)
