Making a Decision You Can Live With
Think on paper and note the pros and cons
Documenting on paper, helps you relieve stress from a mind filled with burdensome thoughts, and it allows you to take a break and come back and review the relevant details and discuss it with others, if you so choose.
Brainstorm options without judgement
Brainstorming engages your creative, solution oriented energy. In addition, think of someone who is completely unlike you and generate options according to their way of thinking. Thinking like someone completely different from you enables you to have a more detailed view of the situation and generate much more options than you will generate limited by your own mindset and worldview.
Honestly Identify your biases
Biases increase your blind spotS, which if not confronted will set you up for failure.
Consider who and/or what will be impacted by your decision
You live in community, consequently, everything you do will have an impact on the people you interact with regularly, especially your most significant (e.g. family, co-workers, friends) relationships.
Identify the human, methods, financial, material, and timeline elements required to make and implement the decision

Ensure your decision aligns with your core values
Your values serve as your temperature gauge to indicate whether you are heading in the right direction. To live separated from your values is to live without peace.
