Making Decisions Do you have trouble making a decision? Is that a hard question? I ask because as I am writing this, I'm answering the question for myself. And the answer is: yes and no. Sometimes I can make a decision really quick - even really big ones. Other times, it can take me forever. And sometimes, those decisions involve much smaller, less significant things.
