The only thing we are in control is ourself.
Why then, should we delegate to others to make our own decisions?
Inaction, maladroitness, ignorance, complacency, indifference...
All of these have an easy fix: deciding to take control of your own decision making.
That doesn't mean you will suddenly start making the best decisions of your life.
And that independence comes at a cost.
Now you are in charge of learning how to make better decisions, better.
That includes understanding your own biases, mental models, and preconceptions.
Luckily there is plenty of material on that out there, a single search or library away.
Heck, I wrote several pieces on that myself:
- One simple way to improve your decision making muscles.
- Draw your way to a better decision.
- Improve your thinking to avert bad decisions.
- Knowing beyond mirrors and caves.
Are you willing to pay the price of independence?
And, more importantly, are you ready to enjoy the results that follow?
