Doing this one thing daily will make you a better decision maker

Doing this one thing daily will make you a better decision-maker

Some time ago I spoke to Dr James Carlopio who used to be my university professor and is now a friend. We talked about decision making.

Turns out there’s two types of decision-making :

  • The rational decision-making model where someone sits down and considers well thought out options (often using a spreadsheet)
  • The impulsive intuitive decision-making process that a doctor makes in an emergency room

Feedback and reflection (on the decisions you made) is the most powerful way of improving your decision-making skills.

Asking certain questions help you become more astute over time

  • What went well?
  • What went badly?
  • What could I have improved on?

Journalling is an awesome way to reflect and gain feedback.

Do you journal?

He suffered through a CPA in 1997 and completed it despite not liking it at all because he believed it was a valuable skill to have. He sacrificed his personality in the process. In 2004 he finished his MBA (Masters In Business Administration) from the Australian Graduate School of Management and loved it! He scored a distinction (average) and got his personality back too!
