It’s safe to say that we all have made mistakes — in business and our personal lives. Unfortunately, we can’t go back in time. However, there is a way to ensure more perfect choices than not. This article will discuss the three-step process to make better decisions in less time.
3 Steps to Make Perfect Choices
Before we talk about how to make perfect choices, we must first answer a big question…
HOW DO WE END UP IN BAD SITUATIONS TO BEGIN WITH?
The reason is not as complicated as you may think. There are only two factors that contribute to the majority of lousy circumstances.
Further, neither has to do with your decision-making skills.
#1 You’re not fully focused on the present.
It is a fact that most people do not have their full attention on what is going on right in front of them. Think about it like this…
In your day-to-day life, how much do you have going on? While those things are on your mind, you’re making judgments. As a result, you’re choices are not perfect.
KEEP YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME WHEN LOOKING FOR SOLUTIONS.
Now, the next explanation for poor decisions may be the most significant…
<#2 You’re reacting, not deciding.
We all are guilty of this one — especially in the face of a difficult problem.
There can be emotions involved. Frustration may cause us to act brashly. Sometimes, it feels like there is no way to win.
Yes, you are making a choice quickly at that moment moment. But these reactionary responses are not ideal.
With that in mind, it’s finally time to outline making perfect choices rapidly…
Acknowledge the Situation
For this initial step to determine a solid solution, you need to recognize the scope of the situation.
That includes all the moving pieces…
Everyone it affects…
In short, it’s the reality of what’s going on.
Doing this should not take you long. It is just a moment to bring your full faculties to the table.
Next is where you determine, “How did I get into this particular spot?”
The second thing you must do to make perfect choices is figure out what actions you did to end up here…
Whether you can take control or not depends on whether you will take responsibility for all areas of your life.
This step of the process is where most people get stuck. They get caught up in what they could’ve done differently.
DON’T ADOPT THAT VICTIM MENTALITY!
Observe where you went wrong so you don’t do it again in the future. Then, move forward into step three…
Finally, you’re going to make a call on what to do — and you’re going to do it now.
You’re probably wondering how to be sure these choices are perfect. Well, that’s easy…
MAKE THE DECISION BASED ON WHAT WILL GET YOU CLOSER TO YOUR GOALS.
This is why having targets and knowing your purpose is so important. It can guide you in the face of adversity.
On the other hand, what do you do when you follow this process and things don’t work out?
Less-than-perfect Choices are Better than THIS
At the end of the day, making the wrong choice is more productive than none at all…
Mistakes are a part of life as much as perfect choices are. As long as you are grinding towards your full potential, you cannot fail.
Persist and Be Great.
