Every day we make decisions. Some are trivial: what do I wear, which shirt should I buy, or what should I eat for lunch? However, others are far more critical in the grand-scheme of life.
When we face substantial decisions, they can feel incredibly daunting and evoke numerous negative emotions. Even though we make many big decisions in our lifetimes, somehow they don’t seem to get any easier to make. We can waste so much time and energy trying to make the “right” choice, and we sometimes even refuse to make a decision altogether. This list is meant to make your decision-making process a little simpler with some straightforward tricks to making those tough decisions.
Don’t rely on others
What do you do when you have a difficult decision to make? For most of us, a phone call to a friend or family member is a logical first step. We tend to search for guidance or some type of advice, but in reality, it is likely that we just want someone to confirm what we already know in our hearts. Many of us are bad at taking advice from others—even when it makes perfect sense. We usually decide what we feel is best, not what anyone else feels is best for us.
