Different decision-makers

There's no such thing as a perfect decision-maker, but some people seem to find it easier than others.

Different people have different ways of starting the decision-making process, and Robbie says a balance of natural decision-making attributes is best.

"Some people make hasty decisions and clean up the mess afterwards, while others ruminate for ages, finding any decision-making hard," he explains.

"A middle course of reasonable reflection and then action is what I would define as a naturally good decision-maker."

You might be more inclined to follow your thoughts, your feelings, or your instinct — a combination of them all makes for a better decision.

Most people are also better at decision-making in a certain part of their life, be it work, relationships, health, etc. But in areas where you are less confident, reaching a decision can be more of a challenge.
