5 Tips to Making Smart Decisions

1. Perform a Situation Analysis

Think about why you've decided to make this decision. How would it affect you, if you don't go through with it?

2. Subject your Decision to Public Scrutiny

Ask your family and friends what they think of the decision. Ask them if they would make the same decision if they were in your situation.

3. Benefits/Cost

Is this decision going to cost you anything? What's the pros and cons?

4. Assess Whether it is the Right Thing To Do

Think about the pros and cons again and think about what your family and friends said if they were in the same situation. Are their decisions similar to yours?

5. Think of a Back-Up Plan

If you think the decision you've made isn't the best, come up with a back-up plan before you take action with the original plan.
