choices, decision, doors

“What to do, what to do.”


Trying to make your mind up when choosing one over the other can be very difficult. I have stood for up to 10 minutes in front of a vending machine once when trying to make a decision regarding what to eat. And sometimes I choose an item that is so mundane, that I wonder what took me so long to make the purchase. So, where does it come from in the mind? Is there a deeper reason why someone would be so indecisive, or is it just a thing we do? Well, you could look at this topic from multiple perspectives.


We often stand around, not able to make a decision because we want to make a decision that we are able to live with afterward. We don’t want to make a fast decision, then it comes back to haunt us later. Those are what we call impulse decisions; decisions that are made without much thought into the decision. And making an impulse choice is fine if you’re buying a bag of chips or cookies. But when you buy a house or car, this is most often the most indecisive decision because it is more long-term. But how come we are this way as humans? Is there a deeper implication into the lack of decision making.


Throughout history, humanity has found means of surviving on this planet. And one of the ways we have lived for so long is the idea that we make rationale decisions. And from these decisions over time, we can now understand what is good and bad for us. So the inability to make a decision is from a very long time ago. A time when we didn’t quite understand the world around us. A time when making the wrong move could render us extinct. And yes, believe it or not, there are families that died off for whatever reason because somewhere along the way the wrong decision was made that cost the family to stop. So, not only is the indecisiveness a short term and long term reaction, but it plays a vital role in our human evolution.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
