I remember when I was a child, there was good and bad, right and wrong, and decisions did not take long at all. Usually, I was always wrong. There appeared to be more clarity about life. And everyone seemed to have an opinion.

It makes me wonder if, back then, the correct decisions were always right. Or did choices boil down to a set of circumstances, or made up rules rather than the facts? I am not sure. What I do know is that in today’s world, it is hard to make a decision, and there is the consideration of many factors.

I am not saying that one era is right, and another period is wrong. I am trying to question how decisions happen. And why if they were made so fast in the past, do they take so much time now?

When we were young, four, or five, or six, we followed what our families and elders told us, and there was no questioning. Today I question everything, and I do not know why, yet today it appears that everything takes time. And maybe it should because everything does depend.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
