Don’t you think the Nike(R) slogan is catchy? “Just Do It!” I wonder how successful it would have been if they would have tried… “Just think about it,” or “Just wallow in indecision.” It doesn’t have a real ring to it, does it?

situation is in front of you. Feel the action and empowerment that
comes with decision-making.
I make decisions with confidence and optimism.
