Book Review: The Next Right Thing

From the Back:

Nothing gets our attention like an unmade decision: Should I accept the new position? Which schooling choice is best for my kids? How can I support my aging parents? When we have a decision to make and the answer isn't clear, what we want more than anything is peace, clarity, and a nudge in the right direction.

If you have trouble making decisions, because of either chronic hesitation you've always lived with or a more recent onset of decision fatigue, Emily P. Freeman offers a fresh way of practicing familiar but often forgotten advice: simply do the next right thing. With this simple, soulful practice, it is possible to clear the decision-making chaos, quiet the fear of choosing wrong, and find the courage to finally decide without regret or second-guessing.

Whether you're in the midst of a major life transition or are weary of the low-grade anxiety that daily life can bring, Emily helps create space for your soul to breathe so you can live life with God at a gentle pace and discern your next right thing in love.
My Reflections:
Are you a chronic procrastinator, hate to make decisions whether its what to make for dinner or big changes in your personal life? I think at some level we all struggle to disentangle the fear, uncertainty and anxiety of making choices. 
In Freeman's book, she helps the reader untangle these choices without the typical pro/con lists, checklists or days of indecisiveness. Instead, Freeman encourages her readers to soulfully think through your next right thing. Ditch decision fatigue, and lean into trusting your own heart in the presence of God.
My eyes were opened to a different way to process, a newness in catching my own voice against God's small still one. If you like me want to improve little by little this may be just the book to help you catapult your decision-making strategies to a new level. 
What started as a podcast has turned into a book, if you would like to learn more search "The Next Right Thing" and you will find many encouraging podcasts to listen to, however, I love having this book to reference again and again!
