There is a strategy we can use to guide us in making better decisions and reduce discrepancies when faced with challenges. The If/Then Tactic also known as Matros's Strategy uses the power of anticipating future scenarios and creating concrete plans for when we finally face the moment.
It allows us to work on our patience and perseverance by focusing on the things we will do rather than those we won't do and it makes the tactic powerful and effective.
When we start applying the If/Then tactic to our personal lives or even while working we can prevent succumbing to stress and easily think of responses towards different situations.
Envision yourself in different scenarios that you can think of and jot down the plans or actions to be taken so that you will feel less anxious. Example: If I am going to start eating healthy then I have to stop eating junk food.
People are biased whether they are conscious of it or not. Studies show that even people who deem they are not discriminatory when put in situations where they must act quickly, hidden biases can often dictate their actions and override their intentions.
When having vulnerable decision points the If/Then tactic gives us an advanced plan of action instead of making rash decisions. It helps create an impulse buffer between frustration and one's decision-making process.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
