5 Tips to Improve Your Decision-Making Skills29 Nov, 2017 4531
Contrary to common misconceptions, students make plenty of important decisions that shape their future. And, in the process of making a decision, you, being a student, also have to be aware of both of its outcomes- positive and negative. Hence, it is rather suggested to take some time out of your daily life to think about your decisions. How are they going to affect your life? And how can you prepare for the worst?
Decision making is a slow process. Like any other exercise, an individual takes time to be efficient with the process. Once, you got the drill of certain aspects of your decision-making process, you’ll start deciding quicker. If not already, there are a few practices that you can perform at the time of taking decisions. Go through the points discussed below to know more about them:
1.Don’t delay in taking a decision
“If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.” Geddy Lee, Freewill.
Generally, the small decisions only stay accountable for a limited period of time, before becoming insignificant. But that’s not even half as bad as delaying the major ones; for the situations that surround them only get worse with time.
That is why, you must try not to delay a decision just because it’s a tough one to make as it may boost the probability of happening of the worst case scenario. Neglecting your problems will not help you to solve them, anyhow. It’s quite similar to sheltering demons under your bed.
2.Keep your emotions and ego to yourself
Personal image matters a lot to most of us. Even while taking a decision, it’s very likely for someone to think about how it is going to make them look. Try to avoid that feeling. Make your decisions on the basis of how potent are they towards solving an issue. If they solve a problem without causing any collateral loss, then you have done a pretty good job in making your decisions.
3.You are not the ‘Chosen One’
It’s not that you are the first human to face a certain kind of problem unless you are ‘Neo’ from ‘The Matrix Trilogy’. All the problems that Neo faced were first hand. While you can browse the internet to find solutions to the problems that you are facing. Internet is an open door. You can read what professionals in your field suggest to do in a certain situation. Pick up hints that solve your issue and make a decision.
4.You are always ‘Wrong’
There can never be enough data to take a decision. That is why consider taking opinions from as many people as you can. Do not rely just on your friends’ suggestions. Otherwise, it poses a great risk that you may end up messing the entire situation. Hence, it is rather suggested to consider thoughts of the people whom your decisions affect the most so that your decisions are accepted by the masses and last longer than they do now.
5.Prepare for the worst
Each decision you make is capable of shooting back at you. So, be prepared for the worst of the outcomes. Take time from your daily regime to think about the decisions that you are yet to make. Find out what’s the worst that can happen and prepare yourself to deal with it. For example, it’s your decision to make whether you want to pursue job or establish your own business. Both have their own merits and demerits. Wrapping it up, you have to be prepared for the outcomes, whatever they will be.
Students, please understand that your decisions are not supposed to fulfil everyone’s desires. Be open towards the changes that people suggest. Discuss your decisions with everyone to get to a common ground between the (ever so varied) solutions.
