#109- The 2-minute Decision: 3 Tips on how to make fast decisions.

I remember when a small child asking my mother- “mummy, how do I make decisions?” My mother thought for a while, then replied, “I don’t know – you just make them.” This worried me because I desperately wanted to know ‘how’. It took me into adulthood when I slowly began to understand the process of decision making.

My last blog post was the introduction to this post so be sure to read that.

Hard Stuff

It is not always easy to make decisions. We have to make them each, and every day whether you’re deciding what to eat for dinner or whether or not to take on a new project, you’re challenged with making loads of decisions. Some we do automatically, while others are a product of serious reflection and thought. However, what happens when we have to make them quickly? How do I know that I am making the right decision and not just a knee jerk reaction?

Three Tips 

Tip 1– Don’t second guess- make fast decisions based on the information you have. What information have you available to you? Make your decision based on that.

Tip 2- Go with your gut- what are you feeling? Trust yourself, and what option feels right to you? Are you swayed towards one more than the other? What’ vibes’ are you getting from the option you are leaning toward? Make your decision based on that.

Tip 3- Consider your past experience of the option in front of you. Or is there anyone else who has a similar experience with this? For example, did you make a quick choice that turned out okay? If yes- you might choose a similar option. Alternatively, if things didn’t work out, consider doing things differently this time to get a better result.
