Your decisions determine the direction and quality of your life. If that’s not motivation enough to focus more on the choices you make, consider this. Your decisions also determine the direction and quality of other people’s lives—not just today but for generations to come.
**Question #1: The Integrity Question: Am I being honest with myself?** *Confirmation Bias* is the tendency we have to look for information that supports what we already want to do. It empowers us to see what we want and tune out everything to the contrary, which can result in faulty decisions.
**Question #2: The Legacy Question: What story do you want to tell?** When this crisis, this opportunity, this temptation is in the rearview mirror...when it's reduced to a story I tell...what story do I want to tell? Which of the available options do I want as part of my legacy?
**Question #3: The Conscience Question: Is there a** ***tension*** **that deserves my** ***attention?*** Sometimes when making a decision, an option we're considering creates a tension inside us even though we have no idea why. It's important to explore, rather than ignore, your conscience.
