How to make right decisions

Which way is the right one?

Our everyday life is somewhat, like walking in a road that has two or more turnings ahead. Your decision determines which one of the roads you are going to follow. And at such points, when you don’t know exactly what is at the end of each road, you’ll probably become more confused.

Since there is no one straight forward way to make decisions, this article will help you learn or improve your decision making skill.

Looking back at the previous illustration: If you find yourself in front of the road that has two or more turnings ahead of you, which one are you going to follow? Undoubtedly, it depends on where you are going. Right? What if: you don’t know where you are going? You’ll definitely have troubles choosing which way to follow.  When you know where you are going, but don’t know the exact road that leads to it, you’ll also have troubles choosing which way to follow.

Therefore, before making any decision, remember the above illustration and ask yourself this question: What do I want to achieve? Your answer to this question and the way in which your mind is programmed, determines every decision you would ever want to make in life. On the other hand, for your decision to be the right one, it should be in alignment to your answer to the question: ‘What do I want to achieve?’

Since your mind and what you want to achieve determines your decision making skill, here is a simple formula, which will help you in making right decisions:

  • Know why you want to achieve your answer to the question ‘what do I want to achieve?’
  • Then, before you take your decision to be the right one, make sure you’ve found the difference between YOU and your MIND. Yes, you should be the one in charge of making decisions, not your mind. And until you find the difference between YOU and your MIND, be sure your decision is prone to flaws.

If you are able to have a clear definition of the two steps above, I bet, your decision will always be the right one, no matter in what area of life you are making the decision.

But, is there really any difference between you and your mind? Yes, there is. Firstly, you possess a mind, and this means that your mind is just a part of you. All the makings, the way your mind thinks, and all the thoughts registered in there, are based on:

  • who brought you up
  • the environment you found yourself
  • the things you do with your time
  • and who you look up to

So, how do you reprogram your mind?

Wow! Big Question?

I will like to know your thoughts, just use the comment box thanks.

Tired Of Learning?

Is there anything you want to learn, but thinks it is very hard or possibly, that you can’t learn or master it, be it a subject, a course, a skill or a way of life?

In this write-up, I will explain in details the most important and almost neglected secret to learning and the simplest things you need to know in order to achieve your aim.

What does it mean to learn?

In a simplest form, it means to acquire knowledge or to acquire an ability to do something.

As an adult, the first step to Learning is to determine what you want to learn. Is it a skill, an intelligence, a way of life or what?

When you are sure of what to learn, don’t make the mistake of asking yourself how to learn it, go straight to the second step bellow!

The second step is to discover why you want to learn. Ask yourself: ‘Why do I need to learn this?’ That question, is the most crucial part of the secrets of learning. The clearer your reasons, the stronger it is. And the stronger it is: the more determined you’ll become. For instance; any person who wants to learn any computer programming language will definitely quit after a short while if he doesn’t have any strong reason why he wants to learn the skill. So, for such person to succeed, he needs a clear and strong reason why he chose to learn a computer programming language.

My fellow programmers can tell you more of the above facts. This illustration applies to any kind of learning, be it primary, secondary, college, or tertiary education. It also applies to any kind of skill or endeavour you may want to engage in your life.

But, how exactly do you succeed in learning?

The fact that ‘Knowledge is power’, is never an enough reason to make you want to learn. Trace your reason down to a more personal level.


The clearer and stronger your reason, the more determined you shall be to continue learning until you succeed.

What is the best thing to do when you discover what to learn?

The simplest answer is: create a personal reason why you need to learn that subject, course or skill. Only then, can you have a strong determination to continue learning until you master.
