Make Tough Decisions: Podcast 080

This podcast is the narrated version of my article 5 Ways to Help Your Clients Make Tough Decisions.

We all approach life’s crossroads sometimes. There are paths, maybe many, to choose from. Help your clients see things more clearly so they can move forward.

In this episode I talk about:

  • Overanalysis = decision paralysis
  • The agony of indecision
  • Step one: Break down the absolutist thinking
  • Step two: Why wait for certainty?
  • Step three: Decide not to decide for a while
  • Step four: Help your client avoid these four common decision-making mistakes
  • Step five: Trust your gut
  • Trust your unconscious
  • Don’t overthink!
  • Quick pointers for good decision making
