Episode 3: The Three Things You Need to Make Good Decisions

The Three Things You Need to Make Good Decisions

Do you have what you need to make good decisions? It’s Episode 3 of Just One Simple Thing and I’m delighted that you’ve hung in there with me for these simple beginnings. In this episode, we’ll tackle one of the top struggles we face … making decisions. My favorite tool for making confident choices is the Decision Making Framework. It will help you make good day-to-day decisions in your ministry or business. So let’s dive into the framework.

Key Points:

  • The struggle with making decisions is that we don’t have a method to evaluate one option versus another.
  • Having a Decision Framework makes it super clear in our heads and keeps us focused.
  • The second part of the Decision Framework is to move closer to solving our biggest pain points, not towards making them worst.
  • The third part of the Decision Framework is thinking about our resources and what we do have instead of what we lack.
  • By combining your why…with your pain points…and your resources, you have a framework for making decisions.

Action Step:
Download the Decision Framework worksheet. There is a place to record your why, your pain points, and an assessment of your resources. Complete the worksheet, snap a picture of it and tag me on social media with the hashtag #justonesimplething so I can cheer you on!
