Making hard decisions

Tim Ferris hasn’t coasted on the success of his book The Four Hour Work Week.

He’s a prolific blogger, and he’s often got some provocative things to say.

This is a terrific post, using the example of Dr Martin Luther King as a way of figuring out what really matters – and then having the courage to make the hard decision.  Here’s one of the things Tim says:

There are a lot of hard choices and big decisions in life. Dealing with most of them requires facing daunting — but transient — discomfort.

And here’s part of what Dr King says, should you turn away from that moment of decision:

And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.

You died when you refused to stand up for right.

You died when you refused to stand up for truth.

You died when you refused to stand up for justice.

It’s at the heart of Great Work, of course:  those constant moments of decision, do I keep going forward, do I cross the threshold, or do I turn away?
