Where are you unwilling to look?

Your shame?

Your spending?

Your success?

Your grief?

Your anger?

Your joy?

Your restlessness?

Your resentment?

Your opinions?

Your anxiety?

Your love?

You’re probably unwilling “to go there” because you’ve been taught more about the sports of judgment and critique more than you have been taught about the experiences of understanding and curiosity.

Understanding and curiosity sure don’t sell newspapers like judgment and critique do.

But they sure can make a soul soar.

The Next Right Thing with Emily P. Freeman

When we have a decision to make, what we want more than anything is peace, clarity, and a nudge in the right direction.

This simple, soulful practice will help you:

  • clear the decision-making chaos
  • quiet the fear of choosing wrong
  • find the courage to finally decide without regret or second-guessing

If you have trouble making decisions because of either chronic hesitation or decision fatigue, Emily P. Freeman offers a fresh way of practicing familiar but often forgotten advice: simply do the next right thing.

The Next Right Thing is available April 2, 2019. Visit http://nextrightthingbook.com/ for more information.
