Things To Consider Before Making A Decision

Do you find it hard to make decisions? Well, I’m no expert but I would like to share some tips that I do really practice in making life choices, which you may find useful. This may not be true to all but at least it will give you an idea (hopefully).

When you are confronted in a situation where the need for immediate decision is required of you, don’t easily jump into conclusions and say “Yes”. Analyze things first. Ask yourselves these following questions:

    1. Is it really important to make an immediate decision on this issue?


  • Will it greatly affect me or people around me if I delay it?
  • Am I the only one who needs to make the decision?

If you answer yes to these questions, then there is no way for you to waste your time, especially if the issue seems to be a matter of “life and death”. Consider weighing things and make a reasonable decision that will benefit all or the majority of all concerned. If this is not possible, then trust your judgment. You, of all people, knows what’s good for you, as long as you’re not hurting anyone.


Life’s experience have already taught you things you’ll never learn in school, I’m sure. Use these experiences in your advantage. Foresee what’s going to happen next. Be open to all the possibilities. Be aware of the outcome if you make certain decision. If you have done these, evaluate which among them yield a positive result.

Personally, I always put myself on other’s shoes before I make a leap. Maybe it’s a gift – that I am able to see things on different perspectives. And as a people pleaser, I try to consider other people’s feeling before mine, so I end up making the majority happy. As for me, I am already accustomed to this set-up, so I also felt satisfied posting smiles to their faces.

Pathetic as it may sound, but that’s me. It can be treated but I’m not willing to get rid of this. As long as it does not hurt me, I guess, everything will be just fine. On the contrary, if your personality is far from mine, making a decision may never been an issue. Just be aware and be prepared for the consequences for things may arise when you least expect them.



Making decisions should always involve deliberate thinking so as not to result to major problems later, like for example in medical aspects, where you need to decide what type of medicine is best for the patient so as to avoid lawsuit like zoloft lawsuit.

This time, thinking a hundred times will really matter.
