Making decisions in your business can be stressful, and most of us tend to rely on the same decision-making habits we've had for a long time. In this insightful solo episode, I discuss two common decision-making defaults that can lead to failure and regret. But don't worry, I also offer practical strategies to help you shift your decision-making patterns in order to make more conscious and intentional choices.
Whether you lean towards impulsivity or overthinking, I’ve got you covered with actionable tips and techniques. Discover how to make decisions that stand the test of time and allow you to trust yourself in running your business.
If you’re new to The Driven Woman Entrepreneur Podcast, let me introduce myself: I’m Diann Wingert, a business coach and psychotherapist with a background in ADHD and productivity, I bring a unique blend of expertise to her work. Through this podcast and my signature coaching programs, I empower driven women to overcome mindset barriers and make impactful decisions in their businesses.
1️⃣ Recognize your decision-making default: Are you more prone to impulsivity or overthinking? Understanding your default style can help you make conscious, intentional choices.
2️⃣ Pause button strategy: Avoid making decisions on impulse by implementing a stall tactic. Take the time to think and consider the options before committing.
3️⃣ Decision partners: Seek the input of others who may provide a different perspective. Having a trusted second opinion can help you avoid the pitfalls of both impulsivity and overthinking.
Mic Drop Moment:
"Overthinkers will tell themselves ‘I'm going to take action once I have researched every possible option for the decision in front of me, I have compared the relative advantages and disadvantages of every single option before me, and I have reached a conclusion on which one is the better choice?’ Now obviously this is extremely time-consuming and exhausting. It can also be demoralizing because it reinforces our belief that we don't know what we're doing, and that we can't trust ourselves."
