Decision Making is, of course, smack in the middle: Between the Thinking and the Taking of Action. Thought, Decision and Action is the Triad of Motion and Change. No doubt: Of life as a whole. Trivial? Not at all. Strange as it may sound: There is no »safe connection« between what we've been thinking / planning on doing – and what we eventually decide to do. Infinitesimally small amounts of time suffice to change our deliberations into action perfectly contradicting our previous thoughts and planned action. This is what makes it so precious to be aware of ourselves: What our routines (R's) are, our patterns (P's), our moods (M's) and our triggers (T's). All these R, P, M and T can get us into an awful lot of trouble if unaware, unchecked and unbalanced. Here's the remedy: Getting to know ourselves better at any given time, and getting back into the driver's seat in moments of R, P, M and T trying to take over. A good starting point for New Ways of Decision Making. Agree?
