Can Decision Making Make You Happier?

I have found than when I immerse myself in decision making, I experience an emotional boost the next day.  So, why is this happening? I believe that making a decision  can be described in a couple words. One of them is progress. Every time we make some kind of choice, we progress for the good or the bad. There’s movement! Action! Things get unstuck and start rolling… you know the drill. This might sound all too redundant — and it might be, but I had to put it down in writing because for me, the benefits of decision making are simply noticeable.

When I have too many things on my mind, it is usually related to those things I have not acted on. Yeah, we all use to-do lists, agendas, project management, notes, reminders…, you name it, but I am certain that if you pressured yourself to act on your “to-dos” with real decision, you will eventually feel much better. It works for me! Just try it.

Strengthen Your Decision Making Skills Every day

  • Start Something
  • Stop Something
  • Say Yes
  • Say No
  • Remove Something
  • Change Path on Something…

Make a decision on something every single day.  Moving forward CAN make you happier.

 

Starting a Start Up – Nobody is Stopping You

We all have a creative spark — the desire to be better, and to have something unique.  We think we can accomplish the impossible (dream?). Interestingly enough,  we tend to  believe those who have acquired wealth have some kind of special talents, magical thoughts, or just good luck. I think that way myself from time to time. Maybe you do too.

I personally prefer positive remarks over negative(fear); it’s just my taste. It took some effort for me to see past his method.

Qualities of a Successful Entrepreneur 3.0

Minimum requirements:

  1. loves Challenge
  2. likes Risk
  3. In constant search of the Unknown
  4. enjoys Helping Others
  5. willing to make Sacrifice
  6. sees a vision but able to act in Gradients
  7. shares his Knowledge
  8. listens to others but ultimately follows his Gut
  9. likes People
  10. not afraid to express Emotions
  11. accepts criticism 

It is beneficial to listen to other people who have created success, read books about it, and ask for opinions, but in the end we all have to follow our gut — our passion, and we must keep building on it.

As cheesy as it may sound, we can all be a Gates or Jobs. We can create something meaningful. We can turn all the reasons not to to do a start-up into an exploration of our positive qualities. Why not give it a try? You can do it! I don’t see anybody stopping you from starting a start-up, but you!

The Death of an Idea

The death of an idea is not always a bad thing. You most likely have at least 20 ideas that you strongly believe could succeed if you could only figure out how to implement them. Some of these do become a burden. You may even endlessly ruminate on your own unproven theories without stopping to realize that your theories may not be built on good ideas. If you evaluate objectively, you will start to find ways your idea could fail. Rather than giving in to the endless evaluation, you might consider that it is time to kill it.

The death of an idea - hit the killswitchIf you are not able to invert thoughts towards thinking of ways these could succeed and how you’ll best execute, kill the idea. I mean scratch it; delete it; overwrite it… just get over the death of an idea and move on. I have done this many times.

Your time is precious, so you better use it on ideas that have a chance at life.

Hint: I apply this iteration method to just about any thought. It WORKS.
