The final page

So now you are in a position to make excellent decisions. Here, just to remind you, are some key things to remember:

  • Gather the facts.
  • Think about what matters to you.
  • Set your goal – what are you aiming to achieve?
  • Know your tendencies.
  • Get it down on paper: using a model (e.g. Pros and Cons)
  • Write an action plan.
  • Act!

I cannot promise that you will never make a decision that turns out wrong. That is because we never know the future. But if you follow the advice in this book you will make the best decisions you can. You can be confident your decisions are made for really good reasons and based on the best available information. Go forth … and DECIDE.
