Seth Godin, online marketing consultant, wrote in his blog the following.

It doesn't have to be a wise decision or a perfect one. Just make one.
In fact, make several. Make more decisions could be your three word mantra.
No decision is a decision as well, the decision not to decide. Not deciding is usually the wrong decision. If you are the go-to person, the one who can decide, you'll make more of a difference. It doesn't matter so much that you're right, it matters that you decided.

Of course it's risky and painful. That's why it's a rare and valuable skill.

How many of us go through life wanting to listen to God and do his will only to be stymied because we cannot get all the pieces to fit together? We wait until everything is perfect (never gets there, does it?) We assume that there is one and only one exact thing that God wants us to do and we better get it right. Faith becomes outguessing God and God give lousy clues (or, at least, not enough of them.)

What if God is saying "Do what you think is best in light of all you know about me?" "There are many paths to my will.""Don't expect me to make it perfectly clear. After all, this is about FAITH."

In other words, develop a working relationship (that's what prayer, acts of charity and sacrifice, Bible study and Christian mentors are for) with me and act out of that. Do you have a working relationship with God?
