Quite often life presents us with challenges that require us to make decisions.  So, what can you do to make sure you are making the best decision you can?  Try and follow the steps outlined in this blog and see what results you are able to achieve.

  1. Clearly define the issue before you go about solving it and making decisions.
  2. Do your due diligence.  What sort of information will you need to gather and review before making this decision?
  3. What are your options?   Don’t necessarily settle for the first thing that comes to mind.  Take the time to think through all the possible alternatives and then select the best one.
  4. Move forward.  Once you have identified the best alternative think through the details of how you are going to execute this task.   What are the potential risks, the resources needed, timelines, etc.   Also make sure to identify how you will measure your progress.
