I asked Dee to think about a decision she had made recently that felt like a "no-brainer". Her example was taking her daughter on a college interview with the Dean of the school. Despite the fact that she had made the decision without an awareness of a decision-making process, I asked her to think about the factors that made this decision an easy yes. Here's what she came up with:
- Unique opportunity
- Important/Makes an impact
- Aligns with her values
- Manageable cost(s)
- Potentially large payoff(s)
How about you? Think about a decision you have made recently that felt easy-breezy to you and see if you can back it up into a set of criteria you can use for future decisions that don't feel as cut and dried.
And post your criteria here -- I'd love to see how your head works!
To your Success without the Tsuris,
