Description
Making better decisions in a timely and effective way is something we can always do better. This is especially true for complex and risky decisions. The more risk involved in a decision the more stress there is.
The T decision worksheet exercise makes it easier to think through the pros and cons of deciding and results in a better decision and less stress.
Most decisions are routine, so this is really for decisions that require more contemplation and taking all available information into account.
The first part of the exercise is to gather facts so you can better weigh the for and against reasons to deciding on what to do. Consider all elements including who the decision will affect or who should be consulted. Think of the timing involved as there may be a deadline to consider.
Writing down the risks is also important to flushing out all the facts. The one-page worksheet guides you through the process.
Once you have considered all the facts and risks, write down the FOR reasons to going through with your decision on the left side of the T and on the right side the AGAINST reasons.
Let the list sit near you for a while and add any items that come to mind. You can also consult with a colleague or friend to help you think through the pros and cons to make your decision.
Once you have gone through these steps write down your decision in the last box and then act.
