I used to be horrible with decisions. Like really bad. But, I’ve gotten better in recent years by using one simple trick. I ask myself a couple of questions like–Which will make me happy? Which will create a memory? Which will I probably never forget? Usually, these make the choice crystal clear for me. Let me give you an example.
I recently had a choice of either flying into Chicago solo to see my son graduate OR flying to DC to go with other family members on a road trip to Chicago. Which did I choose? THE ROAD TRIP, of course! Lets go through the questions:
*Which will make me happy? Now, of course both would make me happy. I mean, the objective was to see my son in his dress blues. So that wasn’t a good question for this scenario.
*Which will create a memory? Now, there’s a question. A 12 hour road trip in a van with 5 other family members ranging in age from teen to senior? This would surely create memories–both good and bad, huh? DC won that one, easily.
*Which will I never forget? Again, DC won that one hands down. So, I quickly bought a ticket to DC and planned for a road trip.
Now, in all fairness, I must add that some last minute things came up and I ended up solo, but it was NEVER my plan! And we had a great time. How could you not have a wonderful time when the end result is THIS!
So, that’s my Life Hack for making decisions. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for choosing between 2 classics at McDonalds on their #McPick2 menu. Why? Because ALL the choices make me happy and ALL the choices will make memories that I won’t ever forget. That is TOUGH!
So, I made a #McPick2 jingle and recorded it. It’s fair to say that I’ll probably NEVER be a rapper! HA! Anyhow, here it is:
Now, it’s your turn to get in on the fun! Share your version of the McPick2 jingle from June 1 to June 18 on social media and be sure to tag @365Black and use #McPick2 and @365Black will shout out their favorites!
