Problem Solving

When making decisions, get clear about your reasons

You’ve got to get absolutely crystal clear about your outcome and your purpose. If you forget the reasons behind your decision, you won’t follow through. 

Don't let fear motivate your decision making

And don’t wait for absolute certainty because you’ll almost never get it. One of the ways to overcome this is to have a consistent process for making decisions. 

Decision making is value clarification

You’re going to have to ask yourself, “Of all these things I want, what’s really no1 for me? If you’re clear on your priorities, it will be that much easier for you to design the best outcome for your life.

IDEAS

If you can completely remove the need to do anything then you’re saving the greatest amount of willpower and decisiveness. There are a few ways to do this:

  • Automate.
  • Silence (your technology, to remove the decision of checking or not checking that message you received).
  • Delegate/Outsource. 
Boundary rules for better decisions

They guide the choice of what to do (and not do) without requiring a lot of time, analysis, or information. 

They work well for categorical choices, like a judge’s yes-or-no decision on a defendant’s bail, and decisions requiring many potential opportunities to be screened quickly. 

These rules also come in handy when time, convenience, and cost matter.
