Episode 4: The 5 P’s of Decision Making

The 5 P's of Decision Making

Welcome to Episode 4 of Just One Simple Thing! In this episode, we’ll continue our discussion about decision making with five verses you can pray and five questions you can ask as a filter to help you make decisions. You’ll also learn what to do when a decision gets stuck in the middle of your filter. You ready? Let’s get to it!

Key Points:

  • Here are five practical things we can pray through when deciding what to do next in our ministries or businesses.
  • Ask these questions:

1.Is it consistent with your purpose?
2. Does it fit in with other pieces of your ministry or business?
3. Does it reflect a God-honoring Presence?
4. How does it affect your people?
5.Are you in the right position?

  • Clarity comes from action. By taking the first few simple steps towards that decision, you’ll bring closure to the decision faster than if you just sit and ponder.
  • There is a place where micro steps towards what seems like a good idea can give us clarity and confidence to either move ahead or step back.

Action Step:
Download the Decision Making Filter, print it out,  fill it in, and keep it handy for your next big decision. Then snap a picture and share it on social media using the hashtag #justonesimplething.

If you are having a hard time making a decision that sticks, it might help to talk it out with someone. You can use this link for a free Define call and we can filter through it together.
