People often go mad when given the task of choosing between two or more things. Making a decision and not regretting it for the rest of your life is not an easy thing to do. If you wish to know how to never struggle with making a decision, then read on.
First and foremost, identify your goal, what is the purpose of this decision that you are making, and why are you making it. Figuring this out will help you filter out what’s relevant to you and what’s not. Once you have the desired outcome, you will not find it difficult to choose options that help you reach your goal.
WEIGH YOUR OPTIONS
The most obvious step to making a good decision is weighing all available options. This is not to mean that it is in any way easy because often it’s what drives people insane. Look at all your options with an unbias eye and considered the one that produces the best outcome. Take your time to look for the one that puts you at ease, the one that you are most comfortable with. Do extensive research on the topic, seek advice from professionals, don’t leave a stone unturned. Look for all alternatives even the ones that, at the moment, may seem unrealistic.
CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES
Take some time to consider how your decision is going to impact you or other people. This is very important, maybe even as important as the second step. Because this is what will influence how you choose and what you choose the most, you should spend a lot of time on it. Evaluate the pros and cons of each one of your options in order to pick the one that makes you sleep better.
MAKE THE DECISION
Now that you’ve considered all your options and weighed them, all that’s left to make that final decision. Remember that timing is key; you could go ahead, right away, and make the decision, or you could give yourself some more time to think, either way, how you time it will determine how well it comes out. Of course, rushing it might cause you some problems but it could also give you enough time to see how comfortable you are with your decision. Taking too much time might cause you to run out of it, and you might end up making a decision that you can’t change. That way if you don’t feel good about it you can always change. In the end, it all comes down to trusting your instincts.
Now you know how to never struggle with making a decision. You can also find your own decision-making style.
