Now that we’re all grown-up, sometimes you no longer need your parents to decide for you. They may give you advises but you should be able to decide for yourself already. Growing up is liberating but it is also being responsible. Here are few skills or tips that you can look into on how to enhance your decision-making.

1. Taking Risk

Management consultant and author Peter Druckers quoted, “Wherever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.” At times, you overthink things, and you also don’t believe in yourself that you can do it. At the right time, try to take a risk, just start it and commit to what you’ve started.

2. Set your limits

Donald Trump said, “Part of being a winner is knowing when enough is enough. Sometimes you have to give up the fight and walk away. Move on to something else that’s more productive.” Especially when you are starting a business, don’t splurge on many marketing campaigns that costs you more than what you have. Try to avoid debts.

3. Meditation

Meditation sharpens the mind by gaining focus, a sharp mind and an expanded consciousness helps you decide clearly. It’s okay to pause from the busy world and take some time to inhale, exhale, feel your breathing it will help you calm. Meditation helps you recharge then you’re ready for the day.

4. Seek advise-only when needed

“Just really, really believe in what you’re trying to do. Don’t let people alter that. Let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions. But trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line”, Luke Bryan, American country singer-songwriter said. Do some check-ups if you’re decision is working, ask from people you know that knows better.

5. Decide on alternatives

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said,”Option A is not available. So let’s kick the sh** out of the option B.” Yes when the first plan fails, move to the next solution. Plan your alternatives, take time to decide if it’s worth the risk again. Gather again important information and the numbers if needed. Again, concentrate, and focus on the goal.
