“The education of circumstances is superior to that of tuition.” – William Wordswroth
The mind wants to discover, but the noise around wants it disappeared. Being street-smart and able to make decisions to create value is to cut through the noise and observe facts. The inability to make decisions often resembles the story of a kid in a candy store, as portrayed below:
A kid walked into a candy store with her dad and was flabbergasted by the array of treats on offer.
“What should I choose? What should I choose?” she asked herself.
“Child, come on, we don’t have all day,” her dad said.
“These are my favourites. No wait, these are my favourites.”
She walked along the aisles, picking up bags and putting them back. She just couldn’t make up her mind.
“Quick, make up your mind, we have to go,” her impatient dad said.
The kid ran around the store, her eyes moving from one shelf to another, but all of the options looked so good and she couldn’t make a decision. Eventually, the dad had enough, they walked out of the store empty-handed. The kid had tears in her eyes. She wanted them all, but ended up with nothing because she couldn’t choose just one.
Moral of the story, the kid should have used street-smartness and reached a decision. Some might say that the kid would be better prepared for next time; that might not be the case if she didn’t learn the value of good decision making. Alternatively, her dad should had helped in decision making, this is how the mentors play their role.
It happens often with almost everyone of us, we go through the situations of indecisiveness, stuck and feel like an unskilled kid. Unable to seek advice from friends and family as they may lack competence, unable to find a mentor and then ending up with a potential failure. Even the great Arjuna needed mentorship and guidance from Krishna, therefore the problem of good decision making is centuries old.
