A few weeks ago I wrote a blog-post about “How To Avoid Money As a Main Criteria” when making decisions. If we choose money as the main criteria, we lock ourselves onto a narrow range of opportunities. We avoid to really GO FOR IT. If this topic speaks to you, you may read it again HERE
Fact is, we´d love to have ALL the information when we have to decide, most often – real quick. Fact is, we won´t know it all and we have to accept some uncertainty. So, how can we avoid the pressure of “lack of information”?
Reflect some of your last decisions in life – common, you know what´s on your plate when you move around in your own world! You know what you want and what you don´t want in your life.
That´s already a big part of decision making!
You choose what´s necessary for you to be happy and you know exactly what makes you unhappy. It´s under your control –
Well, so many things aren´t under your control and therefore you need to team up and involve others to support your bad Information-Management. Fill the ugly gap of lack of information!
It can be family, friends and co-workers whom you can trust and ask for new information. HOW?
Meet! Invite them! Go out with them!
Exchange your topic and your open issue with them and you´ll be astonished – positively – how well the information flow will get started –
After a while you´ll get a feeling of who is a good contact for “this topic” and who´s great for “that topic”. A simple call to meet will help you make good decisions!
And hey, it´s not about asking them what to choose, no, its all about receiving relevant information by asking them for answers, to simply understand your decision problem and to be able to solve it with as much information as possible – because it´s YOU how makes the decision for your on-going life. You choose to be happy, and therefore you choose your best alternative.
Take the chance and fill-up your information-Mgmt. to always be ready for making great decisions! Make yourself smile more often and share the success with your friends and biz-partners who help you actively!
BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
