Indecisiveness: [n] not able to make decisions quickly;
lack of firmness of character or purpose
CERTAIN matters in life are so critical that they require the appropriate step to be taken without delaying. But the decisions must also be correct ones otherwise consequences could be drastic and could mean a lifetime of repentance.
Our moments of decision-making in certain matters are often very similar to our attempts to board a train. Catching a train requires preparation. We have to pack up our luggage, making sure we take the right things with us, buy a ticket, arrange transport to take us to the station and we must, of course already be on the platform at the appointed time, otherwise we are surely going to be left behind. For the train is no respecter of persons. It arrives on time and departs on time, and pays no heed whatsoever to tardy passengers.

In the same way we will miss the train of life and be left standing if we fail to get on board by taking timely and right decisions. It is therefore, necessary to be prepared for all eventualities in life. This refers to assiduously acquiring a good education and losing no time in gaining useful experience relevant to our chosen occupations. Above all, it requires a mental and physical readiness to seize opportunities when they come our way, and to be firm of purpose, never permitting one’s energy to be frittered away in pointless vacillation.

has an equal opportunity
to make progress.
