If you are reading this you realize how important decision making is in your life. In fact, your whole life is determined by the decisions you make, whether big or small.
The thought of having to decide makes some people groan in agony, others get busy with something so as not to have to think about it. And others leave it until the last minute, trying to convince others (and especially themselves) that they think better under pressure!
Or maybe you're one of those people who realize after the fact that they have made a poor decision and spend hours beating themselves up with thoughts of "I knew I should have chosen the other thing" or "I always seem to pick the wrong one"...
Having a decision making process (or two!) that works for you is vital, not just to have any degree of success, but simply to make your life that bit easier.
But should you use a rational model or an intuitive model? What about a combination of both?
("What...! I have to decide already?!?" - It's ok, take a breath and relax again...)
Here we will examine the various aspects of a decision model that experts use in emergency situations. The 'discoverer' of this model believes that we naturally use this model to make over 90% of our decisions.
So we will need to examine the two important things in your decision making... you... and the model.
After that, we can consider how you can improve your decision making skills to reduce any stress and save you time, money and effort.
We will also dissect the various other models, processes and techniques available. And we will do it all in non-technical language, so you can begin to make informed decisions for yourself.
And speaking of informed decisions, there is even a section on mind control. This is where people think they are independent and making their own decisions but they are actually totally manipulated, dependent and having their decisions made for them.
There are good decisions and there are bad decisions. And there are some decisions that are never even made. But each one involves selecting from 2 or more choices.
And because there are several choices there is often conflict. Making a decision does not always relieve this conflict, because you have rejected potentially useful or attractive choices. And there is often pressure to relieve this discomfort (or dissonance).
So it's not always easy...!
But it's ok, there are things you can do to improve matters for yourself!!
We all have freedom of choice, but you will never have freedom of consequences.
To take control of your own life and your own success, making your own decisions and choices is vital. Even (or especially!) when you make mistakes...
"Sir, What is the secret of your success?" a reporter asked a company president.
"And, sir, what are they?"
"And how do you make good decisions?"
"And sir, what is that?"
"And how do you get Experience?"
"And, sir, what are they?"
So making mistakes can actually improve your intuition as much as getting things right!
So pick what's of interest to you, and check out the wealth of information that has been written here. The articles are written in an easy to understand manner, to try and demystify this vitally important topic that is central to everything that we do!
Ok, NOW it's time to decide!! So where do you want to go next?
You have the theory but how do you actually apply it? This book spells it out...
