How to Make the Right Choices?

“Life is a matter of choices, and every choice you make, makes you.” —John C Maxwell

Life Choices

One of the most significant and challenging jobs we have as humans is making life decisions. When choosing a choice, it’s crucial to think through all the available options and outcomes as well as any potential repercussions. It’s also critical to keep in mind that life is constantly evolving and that the consequences of our decisions today can change tomorrow.

The long-term effects of each option should be considered when making decisions in life. Would making this decision result in a happy and secure life? Or will it bring about regret and instability in the future?

What will be your next BEST move?

Some people would rather base their decisions in life on statistics and facts. Some people prefer to trust their instincts and intuition. No matter the strategy, it’s critical to rely on your own judgment and make choices that are best for you.

Last but not least, keep in mind that life is too short to live it in regret. Take the time to think through your life choices and make decisions that will lead to a life of fulfilment and purpose.



What are Life Choices?

The choices we make in life will influence our route and have an impact on our future. The types of careers we pick, the people we choose to form relationships with, how we spend our money, and the values and beliefs we choose to uphold are just a few examples of the life decisions we can make.

Understanding the positive and negative effects of our choices is crucial, as is making sure they will result in a life filled with fulfilment and meaning.

The long term effects of our choices should be taken into account when choosing them, as well as the fact that we should trust our instincts and judgment to make the best choices for ourselves.

How to Make the Right Choices?

Making the best decisions in life can be done in either a correct or wrong approach. Only by looking backwards can you connect the dots, as Steve Jobs once stated. To make the proper decisions, you must have faith in your judgment.

Life is a succession of calculated actions that combine together to become the life we have today. Making sure you’re playing the proper long game is a huge issue.

Don’t wait for things to happen; create them yourself instead. Think, assess and apply action.

If you’re not careful, waiting for life to happen can consume your entire life. You shouldn’t lead such a life. Instead, take a proactive stance to influence events.

Have you lost your focus?

It all boils down to having the correct concentration while making decisions. Here, we outline actions you may take to ensure that your attention is focused on what important.

Here are 20 ideas to help guide you in your decision-making process:

  1. Define Your Values: Understand what matters most to you and make choices that align with your core values.
  2. Set Clear Goals: Define your short-term and long-term goals to provide direction and purpose for your decisions.
  3. Consider the Consequences: Think about the potential outcomes of your choices and how they might affect your life and others.
  4. Seek Advice: Consult with trusted friends, family, or mentors who can provide valuable insights and perspectives.
  5. Reflect on Past Experiences: Learn from your past mistakes and successes to inform your current choices.
  6. Prioritise Self-Care: Ensure your physical and mental well-being are considered when making decisions.
  7. Avoid Impulsivity: Take your time to evaluate options rather than making hasty decisions.
  8. Trust Your Intuition: Sometimes your gut feeling can be a valuable guide, especially when all other factors are equal.
  9. Research and Gather Information: Make informed decisions by collecting data and doing your homework.
  10. Consider the Long-Term Impact: Think about how your choices will affect your future self, not just immediate gratification.
  11. Pros and Cons: Create a list of the advantages and disadvantages of each option to clarify your thinking.
  12. Practice Mindfulness: Stay present and avoid dwelling on the past or worrying excessively about the future.
  13. Embrace Flexibility: Be open to adapting your choices as circumstances change.
  14. Learn from Mistakes: Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, but make sure you learn from them and adjust your future choices accordingly.
  15. Ask “Why?” Repeatedly: Use the “5 Whys” technique to dig deeper into the reasons behind your choices and understand your motivations.
  16. Consider Ethical and Moral Values: Think about the ethical and moral implications of your choices and how they align with your beliefs.
  17. Seek Feedback: Solicit feedback from others, especially when making important decisions.
  18. Visualize Outcomes: Imagine the potential outcomes of your choices to gain a clearer perspective.
  19. Stay Informed: Keep up with current events and trends that may impact your choices.
  20. Trust Yourself: Ultimately, trust your judgment and your ability to make the best decisions for your life.

Remember that making the right choices is a continuous process, and it’s okay to make mistakes along the way. Learning from your decisions is often more important than always getting everything right.

Being able to “think” for yourself is definitely a skill set in the modern era of misdirection and propaganda.



Try the “5 Whys” for your next major life move?

The “5 Whys” technique is a problem-solving and root cause analysis tool that originated in the Toyota Production System, a manufacturing methodology known for its efficiency and quality. The purpose of the technique is to identify the underlying causes of a problem by repeatedly asking “Why?” about the issue until you reach the root cause. By doing this, you can address the fundamental issue rather than just treating its symptoms.


Here’s how the “5 Whys” technique works:

  1. Identify the Problem: Start by clearly defining the problem or issue you want to address. This should be a specific problem that you want to solve or understand better.
  2. Ask “Why?” Once: Ask yourself or your team why the problem occurred. What is the immediate cause?
  3. Repeat the Question: Take the answer to the first “Why?” and ask “Why?” again. This should lead you to the next level of causes. Continue this process for a total of five times, or until you reach a point where further “Whys” don’t yield meaningful answers.
  4. Analyse and Address: By the time you’ve asked “Why?” five times, you should have uncovered the root cause of the problem. Now, you can work on addressing that root cause to prevent the problem from recurring.

Here’s a simple example to illustrate the “5 Whys” technique:

Problem Example #1: The car won’t start.

  1. Why won’t the car start? The battery is dead.
  2. Why is the battery dead? The alternator is not charging it.
  3. Why is the alternator not charging the battery? The alternator belt is broken.
  4. Why is the alternator belt broken? It was old and worn.
  5. Why was the belt not replaced? Regular maintenance was neglected.

In this example, the root cause of the car not starting is neglecting regular maintenance.

Problem Example #2: Now lets do our own practice test and this time on our health. Apply this WHY test to your health and why you are experiencing symptoms? Lets get to the root cause!

By addressing this root cause (by maintaining the car regularly or your body expressing symptoms), you can prevent similar issues in the future.

The “5 Whys” technique is a valuable tool for problem-solving and decision-making in various contexts. It helps you delve deeper into issues to find effective solutions and can be applied to personal and professional problems alike.

Imagine a world where people used this technique for ALL MAJOR decisions especially for health, finances, relationships, and work.
