Every day, individuals face situations where we are required to take decisions- big or small. Some of these decisions are categorised as important and urgent while others might be regular in nature. Regardless, we are needed to make the decisions and come to a conclusion. However, even if the said decision comes under the regular category is almost insignificant to us in our daily lives, a large group of us lack the ability to take the right choices or decisions, thus putting their professional life, family and relationships at stake.
Therefore, it is imperative for every one of us to be aware of the impact of all our decisions, even the smallest ones and seek help to improvise on it, if we know that we aren’t good at it or get a second opinion to just be sure. Few steps to improve your decision making are:
Step 1: Don’t Delay
Dedicate a sincere amount of time each day to work through your decision and take the same stand without getting manipulated.
Step 2: Shelve Ego & Emotion
Instead of searching for flaws and deficiencies in your own self, focus on the facts already available and work on them.
Step 3: Ask an Expert
A neutral third – party would help you to make decisions without any bias and will keep your objective as the primary thought.
Step 4: Question your Data
Seek trustworthy data without any deceit and keep questioning until you’re satisfied to skyrocket decision-making ability.
Step 5: Plan for Doomsday
The final step is to understand the underlying risks of the decisions you make. It is very critical to always be prepared for the worst case there could be.
A right decision at right time goes a long way in anyone’s life. We regret for not taking right decision when it was needed and when time lapses no remedial measure is available. Reach out to friends, family, experts because it is only you who can do things right for you. No one else can.
