There are two mental shortcuts when making time for decisions.
- Do not decide on something big when you’re tired or emotional.
- When you’re working on something else, and someone asks you a “quick question,” say, “Not now.”
Always make time for a decision, whether 1 minute or 1 hour — depending on how important it is.
Make sure you are doing one thing at a time. Don’t read a book and decide on a work project at the same time.
Let decisions be intentional and have a rested and clear mind when you decide something.
