Everyone dreams of making that perfect decision. But is there really a perfect decision? Life is all about decisions. However, whenever one is made, the consequences cannot be ignored.
The fear of having to endure the consequences of bad decisions often make it difficult for many to be decisive in life. In this article, you will learn 4 simple ways to make better and faster life decisions.
- Ignore your emotion and use a formula
Most often, the decisions we make are largely influenced by our emotions. That is not the best. Each time emotion takes the lead, the logic aspect is often ignored.
Instead of being influenced by emotions, use defined formulas. This could be your value system. If the decision doesn’t align with your value, simply ignore it. In short, identify your values in the decision making process and stick to them.
2. Be snappy and don’t overthink
Notice I didn’t say, “Don’t think.” Rather, don’t overthink. As important as it is to think before making a decision, it is easier to find yourself overthinking.
This usually lands you into what is largely described as “Analysis paralysis.” This usually happens when you want to make the ‘perfect’ decision. You will rather end up not doing anything at all. And remember, not taking any decision is also a decision.
3. Don’t do everything yourself; delegate duties when necessary.
One way to make better and faster decisions is by delegating duties. You don’t have to do everything by yourself, especially when there are others who can equally handle it. It saves you time and brings diversity to the table. Therefore, learn to assign tasks to others.
4. Simplify your options
Streamlining your choices is an easy way to cut down the amount of time you spend making decisions. Decision making is easier and quicker when you have few options to choose from. Instead of making choices from a wide range of options, why not simplify your options?
