Straight and Curly 69: How to be more decisive

It will come as no surprise to listeners of the show that Carly and I are both incredibly decisive people. Mostly because neither of us can handle the time-wasting aspect of taking ages to come to a decision.

In this episode we share our best tips for taking the agonising out of your decision-making process including:

  • Spend your decision allowance on things that matter
  • Use the information you have to make a decision
  • Don’t let base desires lead the way
  • Give yourself a time limit
  • Don’t negotiate with yourself over stupid things
  • Stop trying to extract maximum happiness out of every decision
  • Take an outside perspective
  • Practice mindfulness
