On Choices, Decisions, and Spaceships

Did you know that if the Apollo spaceship were off course by such a small amount as 1 degree, they would have missed the moon and would have been sent off into deep space? This is true for the return trip also that they can miss Earth even for that small degree of being away from its course.

Even the simplest decision that we make today can potentially be the reason for the big decisions that we will do in the future.

There are hundreds of moments every week when we make these seemingly small but eventually significant decisions. – Wellbeing (Rath, Harter)

The big issues that you face today are because of the simple decisions that you thought are way too small to even think about.

Most alcoholics and chain smokers started to try just 1 glass of cold beer, and 1 stick of a cigarette, respectively. It is an easy toss of a coin – to sip or not to sip and/or to smoke or not to smoke.

As stated in the video:

Small choices become actions, actions become habits, and habits become our way of life.

Do not allow small choices or decisions to rule over you and your future.
