|Date Added: February 04, 2010 01:01:51 PM|
Most people don't think much about how to make a decision. For them, it is an automatic process. Decision making is just something that you do. You sit down, ponder your options, then choose one. Although it is true that everyone ruminates over decisions from time to time, some people do much more than others. There really are some people out there who need major help with decision making techniques. Even the rest of us – those of us who usually think of ourselves as pretty good decision makers – can still benefit from some help from time to time. Learning how to make decisions in a more productive, proactive way can really revolutionize your life.
Everyone knows that the important decisions in life matter. Knowing how to make a decision regarding your education, your career, your partner, or the house you buy, is important. What most people don't realize is that the small decisions are also important. Learning how to make a decision doesn't just mean deciding on your career. What it means is deciding the food you eat, the way you allocate your time, when you go to bed, when you wake up, and how often you exercise. Every little decision that you make affects your quality of life. Most of us make the same decisions day after day, so they quickly build up. The first step to building healthy habits is learning how to make a decision for yourself.
Fortunately, there are many books, seminars, and courses on how to make a decision. Most of these will focus on a specific area. Some of them, for example, will tell you how to choose your career. This is very important, and is something that you should think about. Unfortunately, few people get past this part of decision making. They look at the big decisions, but never think of them in terms of other decisions.
What I mean by this is that people think of making a career decision as an isolated thing in and of itself. Instead, I think you should think of it as just one example of your decision-making processes. You can look at the decisions that you make with regard to your career and the decisions that you make about your day-to-day activities as parts of the same thing. Once you learn how your mind operates, and what priorities you use, you can learn how to make a decision more effectively.
