Are you the one who regrets one or the other decision in life? What went wrong? Let me guess – you didn´t take enough time to prepare the decision process!
There are two ways to prepare the next decision with the aim to avoid further regrets:
- Write a personal risk list
- Mark your main criteria in a coordinate system
This is how it helps you make better decisions:
1: We risk “M-I-N-T” = Money, Ideas, Network-partners, Time.
The more money we lose the more time we have to invest to get it back, which cuts short our time as another loss and will double the effect. Be sure you add this knowledge to your list! Now check with yourself – do you mind losing something else? Write it down.
And then turn back to M-I-N-T and add the maximum of what you are willing to risk of it. Set a line to cut your personal regrets:
- M = what´s the maximum amount of money you are willing to lose?
- I = what´s the maximum of intellectual value you´re willing to let go of?
- N = whom are you willing to risk to let go of?
- T = how much time are you willing to invest? …. which will be gone and time means you´re blocking your progress!
Feel free to watch my short video about “MINT” and risk: we risk MINT
2: Main criteria shall be marked visually “high”
In one of my videos I explain how you mark the relevant criteria in a coordinate system: setting criteria.
This helps you visualize what you normally just think about. The better you see what you actually think, the better you get to know yourself. Reflecting becomes an easy task!
This will help cutting your regrets short when facing another big decision. Do this any time you make decisions from now on until you are so well trained that you won´t need doing it anymore. Train yourself cutting short any regrets!
Does it help? Feel free to leave a comment about your experience!
– thank you –
BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
