Your View of Options


In a recent blog post by well-known thinker and author, Seth Godin, he provides recommendations for how to deal with options when you find them overwhelming.

He’s talking about the difference between MBTI Judging (J) and Perceiving (P).  J’s seek closure and decision-making while P’s prefer options and openness.

Depending on which is your preference, it is valuable insight into how you move forward and make decisions.  Seth provides some simple, yet helpful recommendations, including:

“If it’s thrilling to imagine the wide open spaces, go for it.

“If it’s slowing you down and keeping you up at night, consider artificially limiting your choices. Don’t get on planes. Don’t do spec work. Don’t work for jerks. Work on paper, not on film. Work on film, not on video. Don’t work weekends.”

I agree with him that, whichever your preference, you just need to do whatever it takes to keep on moving.  Additionally, understanding what your preference actually IS will provide powerful insight you can reuse over and over again.

Happy Journeying!
