Three Ways Embracing Decision Helps Us Succeed


Decision making is a critical part of solving complex problems. It happens throughout the problem-solving process, from framing a question to exploring options and ideas. It also requires ensuring that decisions are delegated appropriately.

We should ask, is this our decision to make?  Are we staying in our own Lane??

Embracing the decision-making process can help us avoid fear of uncertainty and seize opportunities. It also helps us align our choices with our values and instincts, resulting in more straightforward and authentic decisions.



Decisiveness is a crucial leadership skill, and it plays an important role in our ability to achieve success. However, decisiveness is not about making snap judgments or being reckless. It’s about identifying what is essential to the situation and gathering all available information before taking action.

People who are skilled in decisiveness can quickly dissect situations and meticulously weigh potential risks and rewards to chart the most fitting course of action. They also take prompt action, understanding that delay can lead to missed opportunities or hinder progress.

Embracing decisiveness requires that you be comfortable moving forward in uncertainty and that you are willing to learn from your mistakes. You can develop your decisiveness by embracing a growth mindset and seeking feedback from colleagues and mentors. Practicing these strategies can help you become more confident in your decision-making and avoid analysis paralysis.


Embracing uncertainty

Embracing uncertainty is essential for individuals to be successful. It enables them to be more flexible and adaptable, which is vital in today’s rapidly changing world. It also helps them overcome fear, which can be paralyzing. Moreover, embracing uncertainty is crucial for recognizing potential in oneself and others. This can unlock a number of opportunities and set ambitious targets, which can lead to success.

Decision making often involves trade-offs, and it’s important to weigh the risks and rewards of each choice. You can do this by envisioning the potential outcomes of a decision and creating contingency plans for any problems that may arise.

It’s also important to identify external influences that can impact your decision-making process. These include societal norms, personal pressures, and other opinions. These can cause you to make decisions that don’t align with your gut instincts. Moreover, you should avoid over-analyzing decisions. Too much thinking can lead to paralysis by analysis. You should learn to trust your intuition and follow your gut feeling.


Embracing intuition

Embracing intuition in decision-making allows individuals to make holistic choices that align with their values and instincts. This approach helps them handle setbacks and appreciate success. It also empowers them to take risks without the fear of being judged by their peers and superiors.

Using intuition as a guide is important for effective decision-making, but it’s also critical to recognize that external influences may impact your decisions. This can include societal pressures, cultural norms, and familial influences. While these influences are not always detrimental, they can be a source of bias.

Intuition is a powerful tool for decision-making, and it’s important to hone your skills to better understand its power. In addition, recognizing your Sacral Response can help you better interpret intuitive gut feelings. It’s also helpful to consider the implications of your decisions on others and how they will impact their lives. This can lead to better communication and a more inclusive decision-making process.
