Who is driving your decisions?

A lot of our decisions from day to day happen when our brains are on autopilot. This is a feature of evolution that helps us, say, drive to work without having to think about it too hard. But the same human instincts can lead us to make bad decisions. A little extra awareness will help you think more clearly and live a more fulfilling life.

Make Better Decisions

Here’s an easy, actionable strategy you can put to use right away. The next time you have a decision to make, ask yourself if the action will make the future easier or harder. It’s not that you always want to choose the easier path (though, let’s be honest, that’s often a good choice!). The value is in the exercise of envisioning the consequences of your actions, which aren’t always obvious in the heat of the moment.
