Decision making

Since I have to make some decisions, and I am really bad at it, I talked with my spiritual mentors, all of them.

This response was helpful:
first, focus on the problem at hand, not the secondary issues. Money, time, energy, etc. are all secondary.

First, decide what you really want to do. Then you will figure out the secondaries, like money and time.
Then, decide how you can help the most.

The trick is to get out the emotions and just use the mind, rationally. Emotions are impulsive and they want to take over and do things on the spur of the moment, and for that they suck the energy out of everything else.
