4 Steps to Good Decision Making

I would like to address decision-making in my book, as that is a key part of getting things done, but there isn’t space.

So, I’m posting here the four steps to making effective decisions that I would have developed a bit in the book. They are:

  1. Understand the objectives
  2. Consider the alternatives
  3. Consider risk
  4. Decide

Very basic, to be sure. But it is surprising how often we go into important decisions haphazardly, without taking an intentional (albeit simple) approach.

    With a little more flesh, this could make a great appendix!
