So the first decision was how to write the title of this post. Is it “decisionmaking”? Or is it “decision-making”? How about “decision making?” Since this isn’t the style guide or the Chicago Manual of Style or APA standards, and I get to choose – I chose one word.
How do we make decisions?
Some of my favorite methods are:
♦Clearly state the choices.
♦Create a pro and con list.
♦Review similar past experiences and the choices I made.
♦If the choice is not critical or significant – choose something creative…like spelling “decisionmaking” as one word!
♦Trust my gut.
♦Ask mentors for guidance.
♦Pray for the clarity to select the best choice.
What’s your decisionmaking process?
