How to make better decisions

How to make better decisions

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used to create them." - Albert Einstein

  • Colin Powell's 40-70 rule: Never make decision with less than 40% or gather more than 70% information available.
  • Practice exponential thinking: Instead of fixing small problems, focus on solving the root cause.
  1. Get to the underlying problem.
  2. Fill your thoughts with "what if" statements.
  3. Read about and gather information about it.
  4. Extrapolate. Try out scenarios to find the best approach.
  • Create a not-to-do list to know which tasks shouldn't drain your time.
  • Study your errors to know what could have been done better or avoided. This creates a guiding inventory for future decisions.

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!
