How do I make better life decisions?

Decision making is hard. It’s hard because there can be so many different outcomes, and it’s not easy to immediately see the result of those decisions. A decision you make now could bear fruit many years in the future, or it could come back to bite you and make life really difficult.

When so much of your life depends on the decisions you make, you have to make sure you try to make the right ones. If you are like most people, then you’ll notice that a lot of your decisions are inconsequential, but some of those decisions are not so inconsequential and can really alter the trajectory of your life.

  • This could be decisions on your education and training that affects your future job and career prospects.
  • It could be decisions about the kind of people you date, which affects who you marry, and how that marriage turns out.
  • It could be decisions on how you save, spend, or invest your money which will determine if you end up struggling or living in luxury.
  • It could be decisions about what you want to do with your personal or professional time that may affect how happy and fulfilled you are.

Parents may make decisions for their children which will affect which school they can eventually enter and the quality of their education. Working professionals may know that the decision they make to take or reject an opportunity could ultimately elevate their career or stagnate them.

Studies have shown that as many as 4 out of 10 adults regret their life decisions.

How is it that so many people can end up regretting their life choices, unless they made the wrong choices. Part of the problem is that as far back as young adults, people generally don’t know what they want, and they don’t know what opportunities are available to them. Another part missing is that many people simply have not given themselves the time to consider who they are, what makes them tick, and what motivates them.

This isn’t specific to young adults; many adults have gone through life not examining themselves and really asking what it is they want out of themselves, and out of life. They end up making choices automatically, and without due consideration to what it is they really want, and the things that will truly make them happy.

Some of the important questions to start asking yourself:

  • Who am I?
  • What do I want for myself?
  • What motivates me?
  • What is happiness, to me?
  • What is success, to me?
