A child is standing on the street crying. He just fell in mud and his clothes and face are dirty. The mother comes and tries to take him  home. The child starts crying even more, because he doesn't want to leave the playground. So his mother lets him stay, but he doesn't want to as he feels uncomfortable. "What do you want then?" she asks. He mumbles, "I don't want to make a choice."

How often do you feel that you don't want to make a choice? Both options are bad, so why should I choose one over another? Because if the choice is made by someone else, there is a 50% chance that you will realize the other choice was actually better. And there is not always someone who will make a choice for you, so you will be undecided and upset for as long as you don't make this choice.

Everything you do didn't happen just because you wanted to do it. Wishing is never enough. There are a lot of cases when people want something but they don't do anything to achieve it. And making a choice means actually doing something.

    Making a choice is doing.

Here comes the power of prioritization. When you make a choice it means that you prioritize one option over another. Unfortunately, you can't do everything at once. That's why we want to do a lot of things but we only do so much. It's basically impossible to choose everything at once. Prioritize and take action according to your priorities.

A practical advice: in case with two seemingly equal choices, how do you finally choose one? Flip a coin. After you did it, you will truly know what you wanted. If you feel bad after the coin has made a decision for you, do the opposite of its choice.
