WOMEN in RECOVERY – Indecision



Make a Decision



  • Are You struggling with ‘in’action?  

  • Is a situation in Your life causing you a moral dilemna?

  • Is a relationship bringing dis-ease with it?

  • Are You lost in the middle of a family crisis?

The state of indecision can be and possibly ‘is’ the worst condition for any woman to be in.


Regardless of how painful it may be, take the time in solitude, listening deeply to your intuition and follow the Guidance that is being given to you. The land of uncertainty brings with it a dark, negative energy that can destroy much of the goodness that your spiritual work-to-date has given you. Do not take the chance of falling and getting stuck into this dark hole.

Get out of the Land of Uncertainty!




Choice made between alternative courses of action in a situation of uncertainty. Although too much uncertainty is undesirable, manageable uncertainty provides the freedom to make creative decisions.


Decision-Making Stages

Developed by B. Aubrey Fisher, there are four stages that should be involved in all group decision making. These stages, or sometimes called phases, are important for the decision-making process to begin

Orientation stage– This phase is where members meet for the first time and start to get to know each other.

Conflict stage– Once group members become familiar with each other, disputes, little fights and arguments occur. Group members eventually work it out.

Emergence stage– The group begins to clear up vauge in opinions is talked about.

Reinforcement stage– Members finally make a decision, while justifying themselves that it was the right decision.


Decision-Making Steps

When in an organization and faced with a difficult decision, there are several steps one can take to ensure the best possible solutions will be decided. These steps are put into seven effective ways to go about this decision making process (McMahon 2007). These steps can work you You, too!

The first step – Outline your goal and outcome. This will enable decision makers to see exactly what they are trying to accomplish and keep them on a specific path.

The second step – Gather data. This will help decision makers have actual evidence to help them come up with a solution.

The third step – Brainstorm to develop alternatives. Coming up with more than one solution ables you to see which one can actually work.

The fourth step – List pros and cons of each alternative. With the list of pros and cons, you can eliminate the solutions that have more cons than pros, making your decision easier.

The fifth step – Make the decision. Once you analyze each solution, you should pick the one that has many pros, and the one that everyone can agree with.

The sixth step – Immediately take action. Once the decision is picked, you should implement it right away.

The seventh step – Learn from, and reflect on the decision making.

This step allows you to see what you did right and wrong when coming up, and putting the decision to use.
