I used to make decisions in a very cognitive way, the way most of us are taught to make good decisions in our culture. Responsible decision-making for most of us goes something like this:
1: Consider options. 2: Research. 3: Analyze pros and cons. 4: Anticipate and calculate the potential for regret or loss, making sure to minimize the risk of regret, loss or failure. 5: Weigh risks, anticipating worst case scenarios. 6: Seek prudent advice from trustworthy experts if the answer is not clear. 7: Make your decision, quelling any lingering doubt that may make you second guess yourself. 8: Take action.
That all began to change about ten years ago, when I was a full-time doctor, pregnant with my child, suicidal with grief and despair, feeling helpless and out of options, and a little voice inside of me whispered, “Sweetheart, you’re gonna have to quit your job.”
Never had I considered that I would make a life-changing, terrifying, “irresponsible” decision based on something so “woo woo.” A year later, my heart raced as I sold my house, liquidated my retirement account, and paid $120,000 for the privilege of leaving my job as a conventional OB/GYN when my then husband was not bringing in an income, and I had a newborn baby.
It turned out to be the best decision of my life.
