One minute to make tough decisions

From Steve Pavlina's blog, via LifeHacker, an interesting - and very lightweight - approach to difficult personal decisions:


Sometimes we face tough decisions that involve one or more unknowns. We can’t know in advance what the consequences of each alternative will be. This is especially true of big decisions like quitting a job, entering or exiting a relationship, or moving to a new city.

(...)

Let me give you a very simple method of making these kinds of decisions. In most cases it takes no more than 60 seconds to evaluate any particular path.

For each alternative you’re considering, ask yourself, “Is this really me?”

What you’re asking is whether each path is a fair expression of who you truly are. To what degree does each option reflect the real you?

C'est à peu près comme ça que je pends mes décisions, mais ca ne diminue pas le stress, mon real me est pas un gars facile à vivre

Salut Laurent,
J'aurais plutot tendance a ruminer mes decision pendant un moment, peser le pour, le contre et le peut-etre, et puis hop! Je decide, et au lit. Et si au reveil je me sens leger et je suis toujours d'accord avec le "real me", alors c'est une bonne decision. Ce qui finalement n'est pas si different; simplement, passer directement a l'etape "the real me" me permettra peut-etre d'eviter l'etape rumination?
