How to make better decisions: easier & faster!

 

Sometimes making decisions can be very overwhelming and time-consuming. Today I’m going to share my strategies to help you make better decisions faster.
All of us are making lots of decisions on a daily basis. And some of those decisions are massive ones that can have a huge impact our business, career, and our life. I see a lot of my clients struggle to pick what decision to make. when you are finding it difficult to come to a decision is to make sure that you know what it is that you want for the bigger picture.

Here’s what to do:

  1. When you are finding it difficult to come to a decision, make sure that you know what it is that you want for the bigger picture.So let’s say for instance you want to lose some weight. Then that is ultimately the goal, and any decision that you make in your life wants to support that objective.
  2. Which brings us to the second step: When you’re in the middle of a decision-making process, and you’re stuck on what option to choose.  Let’s take our weight loss analogy again and let’s say that you have to choose between cake or carrots. In this instance, you want to look at these two options and go, “Okay, which one is going to bring me closer to the goal that I desire?” And obviously, in this case, the carrots are going to be the better option.
  3. But what happens if you have two choices that will both get you to your goal? Returning to our weight loss example: say you had carrots and hummus as an option. Now both of the options are healthy, and both of them are supporting my goal. So how do you make a decision then? If you have two good options, then you want to ask yourself: “Which one is going to get me to my goal faster?”
  4. Lastly, if you’re not sure which one is going to take you to your goal faster, then just pick one and go for it. Oftentimes the thing that’s holding us back is not making a decision, and just staying in that indecision space the whole time. This can cause a lot of frustration and stress in our lives, careers, and businesses. So next time you’re not quite sure what to do, just pick one and go with it. And even if it’s the wrong decision, it doesn’t matter because guess what? You’re going to learn from this choice that you made and then you’ll improve as you go along.

These are just a few tips to make your decision-making process easier!

Has it Really Been This Long Already?

It’s almost been

– one whole year since I decided to make career and business coaching my full time focus

– nine years since I quit my Wall Street job and started my passion-driven Pilates business

– ten years since I’ve moved to the U.S.

So now you may be asking yourself:

“Great, but what does this have to do with me?” A lot actually, in fact it’s got everything to do with you.

You see Johanna, my passion about helping others get clarity and direction is what lead you to me.

And today I wanted to share something I learnt from all my life and career transitions (and there’s been many more that I didn’t share above.)

I realized that no matter what you attempt you will ALWAYS experience some form of FEAR.

Why?

Because we’re human!

And instead of wanting to become fearless, it’s way better if you can name your fear and accept that it’s there. Note I didn’t say give up because you have it. Just learn how to work with your fear vs. against it.

I’ll be completely honest: Not all of my transitions were easy, in fact most of them were tough. Some even came with a lot of tears – despite my desperate desire for them.

Why? Because I was scared: scared of failing, scared of making a mistake, scared of losing something.

And did I fail? Sure I did.

Did I make mistakes? Plenty!

Did I lose something? Mmm not really, in fact not in the least bit – instead I gained SO much.

And that’s the thing Johanna, in the end when I look back on all of my transitions they enriched my life, made me wiser, gave me grit, and most importantly they lead me here. To you, doing what I love and helping you to get out of your own way too, discover your purpose and living a bigger life with more impact!
