Decision Making



Decision making—the process of gathering evidence, weighing alternatives, considering consequences, and making a choice—can offer an opportunity for reflection, expansive thinking, and great creativity. But most of us don’t find making decisions to be a clear-cut logical process: we’re influenced by everything from cultural expectations to our emotional state to whether or not we’re hungry. Some of us have self-sabotaging thought patterns, while others of us have brain wirings that can make the simplest of decisions overwhelming. Many of us long to make—and be known for making—“good” decisions, but what does that process look like? Are we really basing our choices in reasoning, or on feelings? Understanding all the factors that go into our decision-making process is the first step in mastering our actions.
