It’s Just a Decision

Whatever it is you “have” to do today, this week, please remember this: you don’t have to do it.

You get to do it.

“You get to do it” can feel impossible to accept when we’re not feeling up to it, when we’re distracted by what else might be available to us. But right now, this is it. It’s all of it.

And you get to do it.

Until you choose not to.


DAVID BERRY is the author of “A More Daring Life: Finding Voice at the Crossroads of Change” and the founder of RULE13 Learning. He speaks and writes about the complexity of leading in a changing world.

One thought on “It’s Just a Decision

  1. David, I LOVE your blogs~!! This is SOOOO True…..but why does it take so long to learn this? I often (‘now’) hear myself say those exact words….even to my students….”no….you GET to do blah blah blah” hahahaha….thanking God I’m never too old to learn! Love you bro!! Hey, I’m comin’ down your way for a week!! Mar. 20-26 to go to the David Haas thing at St. TM…SO EXCITED!!! ~Marcia
