10 ideas for deciding what to do next, in brief
I’m totally winging this one
1. Do the next right thing
Not always simple, but at least you can’t go wrong!
2. Make an ordered list of your priorities
Sometimes the biggest thing is figuring out what’s most important.
3. Figure out what you most want to do
If you truly have no responsibilities, I’m jealous. No, but really… how often do you ask yourself, in a given moment, what one thing might make you happiest?
Usually for me, it’s something like a chocolate chip cookie.
4. Call a friend or relative
Whether you need advice or you’re just bored, connecting with someone you care about is always a good decision.
5. Better yet, go for a visit
Yeah, I know you’ll have to get dressed.
6. Take a walk outside
Fresh air, fresh perspective. Plus, who doesn’t need the exercise?
7. Decide which of the things you should be doing appeals to you the least
And then get it over with. Seriously.
8. Do something nice for someone else
You’ll feel happier and less like a bum!
9. Do something different
Like finally going to that restaurant you’ve been meaning to try for the past two years, or doing cartwheels in the park, or I don’t know, origami.
This is the best default option ever, IMO.
