All people sometimes make bad decisions. Some my claim that there is no reason or correlation between the bad decision and some other factor; that bad decisions “just happen”. If assuming that good decisions are those leading to efficiency and bad decisions are directly related to inefficiency. I believe that finding a way to continuously make good decisions, thus is one core aspect of being efficient.
The problem is that we do all make bad decisions. As bad decisions are made, the focus is shifted from the right things, to irrelevant things. So why do bad decision occur? I believe that bad decisions come from situations and times when we don’t feel well, from times when we are in a bad state of mind.
So how do we avoid making bad decision? It is simple. Don’t make decisions when you don’t fell really good. So when your boss, wife, friend ore parent comes to you and need you to make a decision about something really important, you simply say “sorry I don’t fell good right know so it has to wait…”. Well, I guess that’s not always possible.
It is of course impossible to always fell great when you make decisions. Therefore, my advice to become more efficient in terms of decision making, is to try to as often as I can make my decisions when I feel good.Comment
