Being a good decision maker can help you in your art business and life. Confident people make decisions clearly and stick to them rather than changing their minds or being indecisive. As a business owner, you will need to be confident in your decisions. In this article discover 3 tips to become a better decision maker.
3 Tips To Become a Better Decision Maker
For some people making decisions does not come naturally. However, it is a skill that can be learned and improved.
#1 Start Small
It is always better to take on small goals that will help you accomplish the bigger goal. Making decisions will become easier when you feel like you have accomplished something. I tell my guitar students to practice measure by measure instead of the entire song at once. They can accomplish the song in less time, and it builds their self-esteem. I apply this tactic to my art business. Instead of trying to think of the entire picture when I am making important decisions I break it down into smaller tasks.
#2 Approach Decisions Logically
Many people make decisions based on emotion rather that logic. For your art business making emotion-based decisions can spell disaster.
A way to help you make logical decisions is to write down a list of pros and cons. If you feel like you are still unable to make a logical decision, step away for a moment and go back to it when your mind is clear.
You will be able to review your pros and cons and come up with a decision that will benefit your business.
#3 Be Easy On Yourself
Every time that you make a decision, you will become a better decision maker. This does not mean that every decision will work the way that you had planned. The first step is to make a decision. The second step is to analyze the outcome. The third phase is to revise the decision. The most successful people do not even have to think about these steps. They have done it so many times they are on autopilot.
To become a better decision maker you have to tackle small goals, think logically and do not take the outcome personally.
Decide – Assess – Revise
