This Essential to Understand What to Decide
Until you have a clear understanding of the
problem or decision to be made, it is
meaningless to proceed.
If the problem is stated incorrectly or unclearly
then your decisions will be wrong.
All necessary available facts, opinion, data
have to be collected.
This is important because sometimes
solutions can come out from these out-of-
You would also have to do adequate
research to come up with the necessary
facts that would aid in solving the problem.
Ask the 5 W's: What, Who, When,
Where, and Why.
What is the situation?
Who are the people involved?
When did this happen?
Where is this leading?
Why are you in this situation?
These are just some of the possible
questions to ask to know more about
your situation. This is important.

Sometimes the options are few, but
sometimes they are numerous.

that the situation offers no options?
This is the time that you create your

The most promising options should be
discussed and analyzed to determine
how they may be applied and what
results they will produce.
Consider how options relate to one
another, and whether some options
have common components or make
implementation of other options
In parallel with this analysis, identify
options that need more research or
After carefully considering each
option, select the one that seems
most appropriate based on each of
these factors: your own values, the
positive and negative consequences,
your present and future goals, and the
effect on others.
Now choose the best one option
among those which are explore.

guarantees and wrong decisions are
always at hindsight. So choose to
decide and believe that you are

Evaluate your decisions from each
and every aspect because what looks
good on paper or sounds good, may
not work when you actually evaluate
Evaluation is useful for uncovering
the risks involved or difficulties
which need to be overcome when
implementing the option.
Strategies can then be developed to
manage those risks.

Part of the implementation phase is
the monitoring or follow up.
Just making the decision and
implementing it is not the end of the

“When making a decision of minor importance, I
have always found it advantageous to consider all
the pros and cons. In vital matters, however,
such as the choice of a mate or a profession,
the decision should come from the unconscious,
from somewhere within ourselves.
In the important decisions of personal life, we
