Too Much Choice

Last week I went over AbleToPerform to see if I had stayed true to my main goal for this blog and if I needed to change some things.

The links were easy to check and correct but working out the layout wasn’t. I really struggled to get the appearance of the blog right. First I was overwhelmed by the choice of themes offered and then I wrestled with menus, widgets and other stuff.  In the end it did work out and I felt great relief. Whew!

You see, checking the links and changing the layout weren’t the issues. What was? Well… I thought I’ll do a quick makeover and check to see if I’m still on target with the content. But I ended up spending too much time and effort and I’ve got upset. Things went out of control and at the height of my frustration I cried out to the LORD for help. I prayed. I stepped back. I calmed down. And things started to fall into place…

I find I’m investing so much more of my time and effort today to accomplish things. Not only that, there are decisions everywhere! What color should I choose? Which size bowl do I need? Will I be better of with the smaller or the bigger car? Should I wear the red dress or the pink one? And not only that but as soon as doubt kicks in I wonder… What if I’ll choose the wrong color? What if the bowl isn’t big enough? and it’s even harder to make the right choice. What is the right choice anyway?

Do you also find yourself being overwhelmed by having too much to choose from?
