Life is not a matter of chance… it is a matter of choice.
While I’m writing this article, I’m sitting in the library. There are several reasons why I’ve decided to join the library and write from here:
As you see, there are many reasons why I’ve decided to write from the library. And I know I’ve made a good decision.
As a result of this decision, I feel relaxed, focused, peaceful and my mind is clear and sharp.
A few months ago I was given extremely valuable advice from a successful 7-figure business owner. His advice was: “Do everything for more than one reason.”
If you have multiple reasons why you are doing something you increase your chances of making good decisions (the stronger your reasons the better). Doing everything for more than one reason also significantly increases your productivity and saves you time. Our most valuable asset is time, so any advice that can save you time is worth remembering. Remember that! 🙂 In the end, the purpose of this article is to help you save time making decisions or deciding what is the best thing to do.
There are many decisions we need to make each day, like when to wake up, what to eat, whether to exercise or not, etc. Although these decisions don’t seem so important, in the long term, our quality of life will depend on how mindfully we make those simple decisions.
I see a huge difference in the quality of my life when I wake up early, eat healthy and do some physical exercise, as opposed to the days when I used to stay in bed late, eat junk food, and not do any physical exercise.
If we want to change our lives, we need to be aware of the decisions we make each day. Repetition of those decisions becomes habits. Our habits define our character. Your daily decisions and routines will in the long term define who you are. So if we want to change, we need to start changing our daily decisions.
When it comes to making important life decisions, there is a difference between hoping you made a good decision and knowing that you made a good decision. The worst thing that can happen is to regret your decision after you’ve made it. In order to reduce the risk of regret, I suggest you follow this 10-step decision making process:
Whenever you can’t make a decision between two things, flip a coin. It doesn’t matter which side it lands on, because the moment coin is in the air, you know what you want to result to be.
A few days ago I was listening to Anthony Robbins’ Self Mastery lessons, where he shared the secret of his huge life success.
A decision he made many years ago has completely changed his life. This decision can for sure bring success to your life as well.
It was the decision to fully commit to CANI – Constant And Never-ending Improvement. He decided that every day of his life he will learn something new. Since he has made that decision, each day for him is an opportunity to learn, improve, grow and contribute to the world. By committing to excellence, he has drastically raised his standards, and as a result, the quality of his life has significantly increased.
One simple decision can change our lives forever and we all have the ability to make such powerful decisions. At the same time, wrong decisions can negatively influence not only our lives, but also the lives of the people around us.
This decision making process was created to help you with difficult decisions (personal or business). Check out this decision-making process infographic one more time to make sure that you understood all the steps:
