In the process of making a difficult decision I turned to the words of Seth Godin for guidance. I found a few useful posts on sunk costs and it made me realise one of the things I needed to stop considering.
When making plans for the future if you do it based on past experiences that didn’t go to plan it taints your mind.
Decisions based on the past are too often made from a place of fear or include factors that have no bearing on the future unless you let them.
I think it’s useful to start by wiping your slate clean. Start with where you’re at right now and weigh up the pros and cons of both choices. And consider what you want and what your personal plans are not just what looks good on the outside.
