Ever had one of those times when you have to make a decision and just aren’t sure what to do?

Here are the 4 strategies I use for making decisions when the answer isn’t immediately obvious to me:

  1. Ensure I’m not feeling stressed — about the choice or anything else.  If I’m feeling stressed, I do something to relax (get a massage, go for a walk, etc.) and don’t even consider the choice at hand until I’m fully relaxed.
  2. Pick up the phone and call a few friends.  It helps me to discuss the pros and cons with a few good friends — while I may not always agree with them, hearing different opinions helps to open my mind to things I may not have considered.
  3. Once I’m relaxed and have chatted with a few friends, it’s time for me to sleep on it.  I pose the question to my subconscious and let it do the work while I sleep.
  4. After a good night’s sleep, I get up, do some yoga and have breakfast and then check in (out loud)with my intuition and go with my first thought.

I find that this 4-step system rarely lets me down…try it and let me know how it works for you.  🙂
