The age-old saying of “follow the leader” stands true. When confused or in the doubt, check what the successful people are doing and take the lead from them.
Call them up, go and see them, read their articles, hear their podcast, and keep your eyes on what they are up to.
When your mind is cluttered and doesn’t get the direction, get the answer from those who have been there, done that, and are still doing it. Don’t take someone’s advice only on their past success. Make sure they are proving themselves successful in the particular thing where you are confused.
When I am confused about making decisions, I check my successful peers, talk to them, and take the clue.
What is your story? What do you do when you are confused? Do you go with the instinct, do you check with the leaders, or reach out to people for support?
