STOP AND THINK – I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week, sometimes, to make it up. (Mark Twain, 19th & 20th century American author and humorist)

For some of us it seems that it takes forever to make up our mind. Which outfit should I wear today? Where should we have lunch? Should we go south for the winter or north for the summer? Procrastination in decision-making is a common malady, isn’t it? Yet, the longer we take to make up our minds, the less time there is to enjoy the decision.

Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom. (Psalm 90:12)
