Researchers estimate that the average adult makes about 35,000 remotely conscious decisions each day. As your level of responsibility increases, so does the multitude of choices you have to make. Each decision potentially carries consequences that will define the future. The quality of those decisions determines whether your future will be bright, or not.
A clear framework to drive decision making from impulsiveness towards balance and reflection is crucial to realize strategic intent. People utilize a combination of decision-making strategies to cope with the sheer volume of decisions that must be made. We often rely on the easiest, simplest, and most comfortable solutions at the expense of more robust and positive outcomes. Too often, we only recognize the cost of poor decisions when paying the price of handling the problems they cause.
