This is a companion piece to The Omniscient Way of Decision Making.
Initially, I am quite sure amongst us all we have had a time in our life where making a decision seemed to be overbearing for us. We ended up having to make an ultimate choice for the decision we had chosen. It may have turned out to be a bad or good choice, only we are the ones who truly know.
It is even more difficult when we have little or no time to think at all. When it comes to deciding on something right at the moment, in reality, it more than likely leads us into going along with our intuition, our “gut feeling.” Personally, I have been in some situations where I have used my intuition due to not having enough time to think of my final choice on a matter.
The majority of the time, I can honestly say my gut feeling has been correct. It is as if a sensational feeling is rising throughout my body telling me whether to choose yes or no for my final decision. Of course, there have been times when it goes back and forth between telling me to choose yes or no, but I always go along with the choice of the one that makes me feel better. By all means, it is not an easy process and very irritating if I cannot seem to make up my mind in a tough situation that is demanding a final decision from me.
More often than not, having either an emotional attachment or no emotional attachment will cause multiple effects, which are known for getting in the way of making a decision. It is best to then look for alternatives and choose among those alternatives.
Best of all, being able to know exactly how to take action over the final choice of decisions we choose to make will show tremendously in our end results of what we decided. It always turns out better when we are able to ask ourselves “were we able to succeed in that, and is it something we can do next time?”
