The Top 5 Reasons Your Decisions Fail You

The Top 5 Reasons Your Decisions Fail You | Revitalize Your Mind & Life | Scoop.it
What makes bad decisions, and how can you avoid them? Learn the 5 top reasons decisions fail you, and the lessons they teach you about effective decision making.

 

I came to realize that among the decisions I’ve made that I consider really good ones –that is, those that led to positive, beneficial and opportunity-generative outcomes– there are noticeable traits in common. And the reverse is true as well. The really bad decisions that I later regretted, and that caused me pain and suffering, have a number of core commonalities as well. I decided to do some anecdotal research to determine if these common traits of poor decisions hold up when I analyze the decisions that my clients regret most, and they do.

 

So, what are the top five traits of poor decisions that lead us to regret?

 

The decisions that fail us, that take us away from who we are and where we want to go, and cause serious unhappiness and regret, have the following five traits in common. These decisions:

The Influence of Your Social Network

The Influence of Your Social Network | Revitalize Your Mind & Life | Scoop.it
The decisions you make over the next 12 months will be influenced by the social network you surround yourself with. Have you taken note of who these people are?

 

When you think about everything you’re going to do over the next 12 months, do you recognize the influence of your social network?

 

In the next year you will take vacations, eat in restaurants, read books, see movies, and explore new hobbies. Do you know that you will make many of those decisions as the result of a suggestion by someone in your social network?

 

Now, when I say “social network” I’m not talking only about your social media network. While your social network is probably a part of that, too, I’m really focusing in on the people who surround you in a typical 24- hour day or an average week. I’m talking about the people on your team.

Ten Reasons People Resist Change

Ten Reasons People Resist Change | Revitalize Your Mind & Life | Scoop.it
Leadership is about change, but what is a leader to do when faced with ubiquitous resistance? Resistance to change manifests itself in many ways, from foot-dragging and inertia to petty sabotage to outright rebellions

 

Leadership is about change, but what is a leader to do when faced with ubiquitous resistance? Resistance to change manifests itself in many ways, from foot-dragging and inertia to petty sabotage to outright rebellions. The best tool for leaders of change is to understand the predictable, universal sources of resistance in each situation and then strategize around them. Here are the ten I've found to be the most common.

 

Loss of control. Change interferes with autonomy and can make people feel that they've lost control over their territory. It's not just political, as in who has the power. Our sense of self-determination is often the first things to go when faced with a potential change coming from someone else. Smart leaders leave room for those affected by change to make choices. They invite others into the planning, giving them ownership.
