  7. 7. Importance of decision making7 Life is full of choices at every moment of time. There are multitude of possibilities in front of you to choose from. You need to select one course of action from all available options based on your judgment. That is what constitutes making a decision. If you think about it, life is a series of decisions and consequences that follow them. Smart decisions are the triumphs of judgment while bad decisions are opportunities to learn from and rectify our strategy. The importance of the decision process in life is immense, as what we eventually become, is a consequence of the decisions we made in the past. We are what our choices and decisions make us to be.

  9. 9. Facing difficult decisions9 We have all been at a point in our lives where we have to make a difficult decision, and we just dont know how. We spend countless hours thinking about it, contemplating all the options, and trying to sort out all the complex emotions that go along with the decision. We make pro and con lists, go for long walks, or write down our feelings until we come to a place where we can be comfortable with the decision that we have made. The question is, how can you be sure that it is the right decision, and how can you possibly understand the outcome of something that is as unpredictable as life itself?

Sometimes we need to take a moment to stop, pause, and reflect on something before we can move forward, and there is nothing wrong with that. There is an end in sight, and if you understand that you are not alone with this decision, that millions of people have been faced with difficult decisions throughout their lives, you may realize that you have the support you need to move forward. Patience is probably the most difficult part of this process, but it is the key to making a good decision that is healthy and well thought out. Dont give up, and you will find the strength within yourself to make a decision that you will be happy with for the rest of your life. Vision Unlimited - Effective Decision Making
