Metaphorically speaking, fence sitting is not an admirable trait. Throughout my life I’ve had a tendency to avoid taking sides, holding off as long as possible on a decision, always looking for the easy way. In some situations these traits are acceptable and even wise. However, as rule I’d rather make a wrong decision than to hold off on choosing for fear of being wrong.
The more I practice making decisions the easier it becomes. Taking action with the knowledge I have on a particular situation, even if I might be wrong, is far more admirable than freezing and doing nothing.
For instance, it’s possible that I will write something on this blog that is incorrect, I’m human. Does that mean I stop writing out of fear of being wrong? I do the best I can and roll with it.
