MORE IDEAS FROM 3 Timeless Rules for Making Tough Decisions
If the issues on the table have been reasonably vetted, the choices are equally attractive, and there is still no clear answer, then admit that there is no clearly identifiable right way to go and just decide.
For example, if someone constantly interrupts you, the rule might be: if the person interrupts me 2 times in a conversation, then I will say something. This technique can help streamline many typical, routine choices we face in our lives.
Have you ever made a decision that you later look back on and regret? This happens when we’re not aware of how we make decisions.
And that’s odd because the decisions we make, or in many cases not make, shape the outcome of lives. But many of us don’t know how we make decisions. By understanding how our brain makes decisions, we can learn to make better choices and improve our lives.
A few major decisions determine a good portion of how our lives, careers, and relationships turn out. The outcomes of these decision points will reverberate for years.
Even small decisions can matter as they accumulate over the years.
Our emotions are obsessed with the present moment because it’s difficult to look past our immediate fears and anxieties. And this prevents good decision-making.
The sweet spot in decision-making is to find the short-term failures that enable huge long-term successes to happen in the first place.
