Figuring out what to do next the easy way…

What is your method for making a complicated decision? Worrying the decision to death comes to mind, but that is not a good way to get to a good solid decision.

Try something that can be said to be a bit dated, but works, really, each time. Get a piece of paper (not your IPad, phone notes, Outlook, no technology) and a pen, draw a line down the center and label the two columns Pros and Cons. Give yourself a deadline for when the decision needs to be made and spend 20 minutes listing the pros and cons of your thinking about the decision; the impact of the decision; the cost of the decision, how to communicate the decision etc.

Your brain will be a big help because you are connected to the process of deciding. Your technology is convenient, but the actual physical writing out your thoughts can help you be creative and smart about the Pros and Cons…and the details that will be part of a well-made decision.
