…of course, doesn´t really exist!
But what exists is the difference between a decision we make from choices and the one which is a risk-based decision. Okay, here´s the difference of both: the decision by choices carries clear consequences and a clear goal we want to reach. That means we choose from various things we like, we see and can reach and that makes the choice quite easy to make and take.
The risk based decision is the one which doesn´t offer clear consequences to us. We can expect this or that as a guess but it carries big uncertainties. That´s the one we need to think about. That´s a real decision – wrapped in uncertainty. I made the experience last year that I allowed emotions to hi-jack me from grabbing some uncertain or unclear consequences which I simply couldn´t spot. My mind didn´t see through the opportunity and I couldn´t view a potential goal as well. If I would have known what I know by now I would have grabbed this big uncertainty. The offering situation was positive through and through but I was kind of blind and out of energy at that time to view any further.
Yes, I had to think of it all the time because I don´t want it ever to happen again. And to get there I needed to find out what really happened. I was just reacting. I wasn´t really deciding. And the current consequences aren´t attractive at all.
…..ever missed an attractive goal by not realizing the opportunity to get there?
Since there is no “how to” recipe but creating your desirability curve for your goal (interpreting your risk profile or -factor) you rather need to learn to interpret your reactions. Re-acting is not really deciding but it carries consequences – same as decisions do. You need to own the ability to check yourself well.
Know about your flexibility when it comes to real decision making because it is limited, it is locked in a certain space between A and D. You need to know how small or big the distance is between both spots which on one side locks your security of not losing it all and on the other side allows to take what you want. Know your fence! It will widen once you augment your experience.
Your decisions are the direct Link to what happens next in your life. Make it happen!
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
