Even the most energetic people don’t have endless
mental energy. Our ability to perform mental tasks and
make decisions wears thin when it’s repeatedly exerted.
To counter it, identify the most important decisions you
need to make, and, as often as possible, prioritize your
time so that you make them when your energy levels are
Lack of input
We need information to better decide and to analyze all
the outcomes. And when we don´t have enough time to
think there is a great chance of not acting according, as
well. And such two elements information and time are
fundamental for the whole decision-making process.
We should know that performance and decision-making
effectiveness are affected by up to 40% when we are
involved in more than two activities at the same period.
Based on that we need to be careful and keep focus when
deciding to avoid misunderstandings and misguiding.
Experiencing frustration, excitement, anger, joy, etc., is a
fundamental part of the daily human experience. Such emotions
have a meaningful role in our lives and during our decision-
making process. That is why it is important to pay attention to
your emotional state and focus on the character strength of self-
control. Being able to build up self-control is an excellent way to
think more clearly and calmly.
While the Information Age has gifted us with an abundance of
information, big data, and metrics, there’s also no end to the amount of
information we can access. And we know that the more information we
have to consider, the longer we typically take to make a decision. While
the decision-making process should be thorough, the best way to make
good decisions is usually not to take more time or to look at more
information. Instead, review the pertinent information you need, set a
deadline to make a decision, and then stick to it.
A steady state of distraction
Many of us live in a continuous state of distraction from
all the available technological tools. We need to keep
focus when using them, choosing well its application in
our daily activities.
We need to be aware that our decisions shape our
relationships and professional outcomes during our life.
Inevitably, we all make some poor decisions every single
day. But if we are aware of these six enemies of good
decision-making, and take steps to outmaneuver them,
we can make better decisions that have a positive impact
on the people we work with and lead.
