How To Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better ChoicesStart 30 days trial now
You make thousands of decisions every day—some big, some small. Some clearly of great consequence, like what job to take. And some clearly of little consequence, like what to eat for breakfast.
No matter what type of decision you’re facing, it’s imperative to develop a decision process that not only improves your decision quality, but also helps sort your decisions so you can identify which ones are bigger and which ones are smaller.
Why is it so important to have a high-quality decision process?
Because there are only two things that determine how your life turns out: luck and the quality of your decisions. You have control over only one of those two things.
Luck, by definition, is out of your control. Where and when you were born, whether your boss comes into work in a bad mood, which admissions officer happens to see your college application—these are all things that are out of your hands.
