I suck at making decisions!!!!

Don't ask me where I want to eat or what I want. I want food and I don't know from where.
Don't let me loose in a tack shop because I won't be able to choose between the purple halter or the red one or if I want a rubber curry comb with a cool handle or just a regular old black one...we will be there forever.

And the one mistake my boss made last night "You're scheduled Wednesday and Thursday but do you want to come in tomorrow or Tuesday? Up to you but I know you and if you're too busy that's fine, I just might need some back up."

Now I've stated a million times I love my job and I know for a fact I won't be able to make it in today as back up. I have the morning at the barn, then the dogs get a bath, and then I really need to kick myself in the butt to clean up my place a bit. But Tuesday..hmmm that's a tough one! As far as I know I have it completely free other than riding in the morning. Part of me says stay home, pop in a movie and snuggle with the doggies. The other part says to go over my wants and needs list for my animals and myself and hope my favorite customers come in. I dunno!!!!! I need one of those easy buttons.

The horrible thing today...I have to enter a tackshop!!!! My goal is to make a beeline to the fleece turn around and pay quick. But to get to the fleece I pass treats and lead ropes and halters

I am the same way. Whenever me and the husband go out for lunch he always ask where to you want to go and I always say "I don't care."

It works out great for us because he likes things to go his way and I can't make a decision to save my life. :)

I'm the same way, never ever ask me where to go for dinner, the movies etc.
Carry a coin and flip it. I do that a lot, make "if this happens I'll do it" deals. If the dog wakes up I'll do the dishes

I'm the opposite. I tend to be impulsive and make fast decisions... go with your gut type of thing. Usually it turns out all right, but sometimes I wish I had thought things through first!

If I have a gut feeling I'll go with it but other than that I fail miserably at making decisions.

Pretty same here, especially with important decisions. And I think it's stressful. Just think this side and all the effects on it, then that side and all the effects on it... weigh the effects of all the alternatives. Okay, that's the best choice... Wait, wait! Is it? I think this is perhaps better. Or is it...?

Blah :roll:.

I have no trouble making decisions and choices but it is so nice to have someone take that over once in a while. Owning a business you learn very quickly to take charge and make decisions. Fun, no, just necessary. I am also a list maker (shudder) , so I can get as much done as possible in as little time as possible. So when Don takes charge and makes a choice for me, I am soooooo happy.

The bad thing is I leave very little time for "spontaneity". Unless of course I have scheduled that into my day!

I'm a list maker too and that's the only way to hurry up my decisions and if it comes down to it with extremely important decisions I'm happy to make them. With little things like what color halter, do I need this now or later, should I drive an hour to this restaurant or get burger king instead...not good at making those decisions. That's when I let my boyfriend decide his hunger or I look at my dogs and say "fries or spaghetti"
