How to Make Your Team More Productive

3 Steps to Quick Decisions

Let’s face it, making decisions on the fly is part of life. We only have so many hours in a day, so it’s important to be decisive.

Here are 3 things to try to make decisions faster:

  1. Practice: Good decision making takes time and practice. When you’re tasked with your next big decision, block out time to work on it like any other project. Weigh out your options and make the best decision for you.
  2. 30-second rule: Are you indecisive? Give yourself 30 seconds to make small decisions like what you’re going to wear or eat for lunch. Rinse and repeat daily. You’ll eventually work your way up to bigger decisions at the same rate.
  3. Give feedback:  You aren’t always going to make the best decision. That’s life. It’s important to reflect on your decisions and figure out how you can do better on the next one. The worst thing you can do is start beating yourself up.

So, what are you eating for lunch? The clock starts now.
