How do you make the ‘Right Decision’?
A little talk with Dr. Google shows that, on average, a typical adult may make up to 35,000 decisions a day!
What to wear, what to eat, what to say in response to a situation, what to do (or not do!) and perhaps the most interesting one ‘what to think’?
Reflecting on the last two monthly blogs, anyone who read them made some decisions in the act of reading them. February’s Blog informed the reader about a tried and tested tool to help them achieve their number one goal. March’s Blog encouraged the reader to consider agreeing to spend a minute a day to help with an upcoming initiative to help kids who lost a mom/dad/sibling to death.

How did people decide whether to take action?
Maybe the mental ‘decision dice’ you roll has many many more sides than the conventional 6. How many of those sides have the word ‘Money’ on? How many have ‘Time’?……. and what actually is ‘Value’ if not money?
Perhaps you roll your decision dice a number of times. And then you’ve probably got a few mechanisms in place to actually follow through on what the deciding roll determines.
This month’s blog is going to encourage you to consider a different approach. How to potentially tap into your gut instinct. You’ll probably still roll your normal ‘decision dice’ anyway – rolling it 35,000 times a day means it’s almost a natural habit that you do either consciously or subconsciously. But this month’s encouragements consider a different approach.
So, how do you make the ‘right decision’? Let’s end this discussion with a more philosophical point. Is there such a thing as a ‘right’ decision? If you’re into chaos theory – or you’ve heard of El Nino or the Butterfly Effect – then you may have an appreciation that any decision could ultimately lead to an infinite number of indirect outcomes. So in which case, what’s the harm in trying a new technique to make a decision?
