Making Conscious Decisions #inspiration #goals

I have been really focusing on making conscious decisions lately.  

As many of my readers know,  I have been on the Weight  Watchers program.  After a short hiatus, I returned a couple of weeks ago.  I find myself being very conscious about the food decisions that I am making.  I also find it carrying over into other aspects of my life as well.  

I feel that I am not rushing decisions like I have in the past.  I am really weighing in on the consequences of the decisions that I am making.  After all, if I want to break bad habits, I have to create good ones.

So, how does a person make conscious decisions?  

 According to, a person makes 35,000 decisions a day! That is a lot of decisions!  So, how do we assure ourselves that the decisions we make are our best interest?

The first thing we should do is create a group of questions that relate to our decision.  

How will this decision effect me now or in the long run?
If I make this decision, will I regret it?
Is this decision beneficial or detrimental to me?
Would I tell someone else in my predicament to make this decision?
(insert your questions to yourself here)

This is called a decision matrix.  The questions we create should focus on our weaknesses in hopes of turning them into strengths. Every decision should be analyzing the benefits or negatives that derive and at what cost.

Each time you face a challenge or dilemma, turn to your group of questions, or decision matrix,  and let the answers you supply weigh in on the decision you make.  The key to being successful is making sure that you use your matrix and make the questions focus on all angles of your decision.

Having this matrix will make you a stronger and smarter decision maker because it will force you to think about what you are doing before you do it.

This is all part of my being successful plan.   Little changes like this in the short term will lead to big changes in the long run.

Stay focused on your goal.  Create changes. Be Successful.
