Some years back when I was still in college I was rather fascinated about decision-making, I read and browsed quite a few books around the topic and learned even some decision making tools which I even now use sometimes.
Yet the question “how to make better decisions?” is still with me.
There are of course some decisions that have smaller impacts, and then there are the life long decisions that really matter. I am focusing more to the latter category, of making big decisions.
Information is the game Changer in decision making. To counteract the lack of information we need to do something called “research”, research until we are satisfied and can make a decision. This is called the saturation point in academics.
When we have enough information we can trust, decision making becomes easy. Decide something and stick with it. Make your new choice a habit.
I’ve successfully applied this with quite few habits over the past year for example: quitting tea, starting salsa, going vegetarian. Merely making the decision and then sticking with it. No re-negations.
Remember, decide and stick with it so you will be there.
