5 Step Decision Making System in brief

I generated more than $1000 by selling digital products, last month.

I used this 5-step system to make my decisions.

You can learn and implement these lessons:

Step 01 – Have clear goals

Prioritize you can’t have everything you want.

Don’t confuse goals with desires.

Decide what you really want in life by reconciling your goals and your desires.

Never rule out a goal because you think it’s unattainable.

Remember that great expectations create great capabilities.

Almost nothing can stop you from succeeding if you have flexibility and self-accountability.

Knowing how to deal well with your setbacks is as important as knowing how to move forward.

Step 02 – Identify and don’t tolerate problems

View painful problems as potential improvements that are screaming at you.

Don’t avoid confronting problems because they are rooted in harsh realities that are unpleasant to look at.

Be specific in identifying your problems.

Don’t mistake a cause of a problem with the real problem.

Distinguish big problems from small ones.

Once you identify a problem, don’t tolerate it.

Step 03 – Diagnose problems to get at their root causes

Focus on the “what is” before deciding “what to do about it”.

Distinguish proximate causes from root causes.

Recognize that knowing what someone (including you) is like will tell you what you can expect from them.

Step 04 – Design a plan

Think about your problem as a set of outcomes produced by a machine.

Remember that there are typically many paths to achieving your goals.

Think of your plan as being like a movie script in that you visualize who will do what through time.

Write down your plan for everyone to see and to measure your progress against.

Recognize that it doesn’t take a lot of time to design a good plan.

Step 05 – Put these plans into action

Great planners who don’t execute their plans go nowhere.

Good work habits are vastly underrated.

Establish clear metrics to make certain that you are following your plan.
