One of the most effective decision making strategies is to keep an eye on your goal.
This simply means identifying the purpose of your decision by asking yourself what exactly is the problem that needs to be solved? And why does this problem need to be solved?
Figuring out what's most important to you will help you make good decisions. When you know the reason why you have making a particular decision; it will better serve you in staying with it, and defending it.
When making good decisions it is best to gather necessary information that is directly related to the problem.
Doing this will help you to better understand what needs to be done in solving the problem, and will also help to generate ideas for a possible solution.
When gathering information it is best to make a list of every possible alternative; even ones that may initially sound silly or seem unrealistic.
You will want to gather as many resources as possible in order to make the best decision.
It will help you determine how your final decision will impact yourself, and/or others involved.
In this step, you will be asking yourself what is likely to be the results of your decision. How will it affect you now? And how will it affect your future?
This is an essential step because it allows you to review the pros and cons of the different options that you listed.
It is also important because you want to feel comfortable with all your options and outcome of whichever one you choose.
Understanding that this step can cause some people a lot of anxiety is important because this is where you have to trust your instincts.
Although you may still be slightly indecisive about your final decision, you have to take into account how this makes you feel.
Ask yourself, does it feel right? And does this decision work best for you now, and in the future?
When you answer those questions back, you should feel good about the result.
This final step is probably just as important as step one, if not more important, because it will help you to further develop your decision making skills for future problems.
This step is also fundamental because it may require you to seek out new information and make some changes along the way.
Remember, this step requires some patience and it can also encourage perseverance. Why? Because it may take some time to see the final outcome.

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!
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.
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
