Tried and True Tactics

“My boyfriend got better at making decisions because of our discussions after he had missed out on a couple of really good career opportunities. I think I helped him realize that making no decision was, in fact, a decision. It was deciding ‘no’ by deciding nothing at all. My boyfriend finally realized that, even if he was going to say ‘no’, he might as well take ownership of that choice. He has, and he now says he feels much more in control of his life.”—Erin, 27

If you’re encouraging someone to go ahead and make a decision, it’s also crucial that you let them know that you will accept whatever decision they make. That doesn’t mean only accepting it if you agree with it.

They’ll also need to believe that you will not hold it over their head if it doesn’t work out. Remember, you want to impress on them that some decisions turn out to have been wiser than others in retrospect. When that happens, we make the best of things and move on. No Monday-morning quarterbacking!
