5 STEPS BEFORE YOU MAKE A DECISION

We make decisions every day, from what time we set our alarm clock, to what who we want our friends to be. Some decisions are meager and do not affect our lives but other decisions are life-altering even if we did not think they'd be when we made them. The following are 5 steps you need to take into account before making any decision.



1. WHY :  Your Goal Is to

What is causing you to do that action, Is it a priority, Are you under pressure, Are you making the decision due to intense emotions, Had you decided to do it before or thought about it before hand or is it on impulse? Does it feel right? Do you have a choice?


2. WHO : Does It Involve Others

When you've made your decision, have you considered the people around you. Should you consider them? Is the decision you are making for the greater good of both you and the people around you? Is the decision based on those people? What will their reaction be when the decision is acted upon? Are you ready to be responsible for the outcome of your actions? Do you need to ask for advice?


3. WHERE : Will It Affect The Environment

When you've made your decision, does it affect the environment in anyway? If so, how are you going is this effect positive? Does it make society better? Are you the one who is going to see the outcome of that action?


4. WHEN : Is It in Step For A Higher Goal

Is there an outcome that you are routing for? What happens if things do not happen as planned? Is there much to be lost? Will the result affect you alone? Is it worth the risk?


5. WHAT : IF's, AND's or MAYBE's.

What happens if it doesn't work? Do you have a back up plan? Does it matter? Who makes the decisions in your life?
