How to Make Better Decisions

Mahatma Gandhi said: “Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love.”

Every time we have a decision to make, we have two choices: We can either make the decision based out of fear or out of love. It’s an interesting concept that drives good decisions because pretty much any time that you make a decision out of fear, it ends up being a bad decision.

When instead you frame it as “how can I create more love” and “what is the right thing to do?”—that decision gets made easily and is almost always the very best decision you could have made. So, choose love over fear.
