Successful outcomes are never the result of a single choice. They are built up through good choices over time.What are certain choices that you are making that can affect you today or in the future? Making quick decisions that are effective is what organizations look for in an employee. Being able to decide quickly and state your decision can be a literal lifesaver. Having worked in emergency units, I know that quick thinking decides between life and death.One aspect of this kind of decision making that is assumed but have not been focused much upon is the "Inner Confidence". In my experience, " Faking confidence"will not have any impact on quick decision making. In fact, the false bravado one puts across may fall off and he/she can panic. Being able to access your "Inner Confidence" and making decisions in a way that reduces stress and anxiety can boost your self-esteem too. A technique that I rely on is the 10-12-10 rule. Any decision I take, I run it through my mind, check if it aligns with my vision and purpose. Then I ask myself, how will I feel about my decision 10 minutes , 1 year and 10 years later.
