At some point of time in our life, we reach a crossroad. At that point, we need to decide how we wish to travel for the rest of our lives or until the next crossroad appears. Every day we make decisions. While some may be as simple as which dress to wear or what to cook today, we also make major decisions like whether to change the career or select the best school for your child. Whether big or small, decision making is an inherent part of everyday life.
Have you ever felt that it would be great if someone could just listen to you and help you make your decision? Yes, there are friends and relatives, but sometimes, you will need a neutral person who can help you make a decision. During such times, you can consult an online life coach. Most major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, and Bangalore have life coaches who offer such assistance and support.
However, before you consult life coach, you can try these three major rules to make a decision.
- What if
Create imaginary ‘what if’ situations? You need to imagine situations that could arise because of a particular decision. Do you feel happy and satisfied when you imagine the outcome or does it feel like it could be more trouble for you?
- Ask yourself Why?
Ask yourself why you want to make a particular decision. You could decide because of personal reasons, professional reasons, or because of family conditions. Unless you get the answer to the ‘why’ question, you will always be in a quandary wondering if you had made the right decision.
- What are the next steps?
Before you make a decision, you need to deliberate on the action steps that you need to take while making the decision and to face the consequences of the decision. In other words, you need to have an action plan in place.
Even with these rules, do you still feel that you are not clear about what to decide? In such a case, you can consult an online life coach. The life coach will not make decisions for you, but help you navigate the three rules to help you make your decision. They will help you in your decision-making process.
