Did you know the word DECIDE comes from the Latin word decidere, meaning “to cut off”?
This is compelling, yes? A bit of an AHA actually. Most of us make decisions to say YES to something without the accompanying NO to something else. The cutting off. 
And what happens to our YES? Not much.
I believe there is a great work within each of us, and that each moment is an opportunity to say YES through some small step to living in alignment with our vision and passion.

But I get it (and fall prey to it). There are a million real and artificial demands on your time. People wanting something, old commitments with incomplete tasks, to do lists, email, social media trolling, and the  urgent / unimportant or the “I have to’s” of our life.

There is always a form to complete, an order to place, a stew to cook. You can busy yourself with yet another meeting, perfect the project, or slip into another conversation proclaiming “I am too busy,” and you’ll be in excellent company as most of us are on that plane.

But if it is a different impact you crave; a pursuit you dream of; a purpose that ignites you. Begin Now with a YES that includes clarity on the NO. The Cutting Off. 

This is how we awaken our soul and reignite our hunger in life. Our soul is always whispering: Wake Up.

 Stop justifying the should’s and the have to’s. Take a risk on yourself.  Don’t play small. Stop living a prescription for your life that isn’t yours. 

Maybe your C suite position that looks like wild success against our societal metrics feels like a coat too tight; a hat to snug.  Maybe your carefully crafted life of leaving your career to care for your family; while admirable & respectful, has left you feeling incomplete even though overscheduled. Maybe the promotion that now has you sitting endlessly at the conference table; while lucrative, drains your life force. 

Or maybe not. Only you know. And only you can DECIDE for you.

And answer the question: What is Your YES?
