How to Make Decisions (Even the Hard Ones) – 076

This Grit and Grace Life Podcast

Women are faced with decisions every day—from the tiny, seemingly insignificant ones like what to wear, eat or watch, to the big ones. You may be deciding what job to take, where to move or how to deal with friendships gone awry. Our lives can change by the decisions we make, and they even can be affected by those we refuse to make. With that in mind, co-hosts Darlene Brock and Julie Graham take this episode to outline five steps that help when making a decision. They also spend a little time on two of the tough ones facing women today—when to walk away from a dating relationship that is going nowhere and what do you do when dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. These five points will help in any decision facing women today, big or small. Follow them, trust your gut and make that decision, applying a bit of grit and grace.

Here are the 5 steps for making a decision:

1. Identify your goal or the decision that needs to be made.
2. Gather information.
3. Find alternatives, evaluate and eliminate.
4. Choose! Make your decision and commit.
5. Review and adjust as needed.
