How to Improve Decision Making

Would you like to improve your decision making? Consider the suggestions from Henry and Richard Blackaby in Spiritual Leadership.

  • Evaluate Your Decisions: Every decision has consequences. Make it a practice to evaluate the results of your decisions.
  • Walk Closely with God: When you struggle to make a decision, consider the struggle as an indicator that you need some quiet time with God. Remove distractions and focus on Him.
  • Seek God’s Vision: There is no value in making progress in the wrong direction. Always seek God’s direction. Seeking the mind of God at the front end of a decision can save you years of painful regret later.
  • Seek God’s Wisdom: The book of Proverbs is packed with God’s wisdom. If you aren’t getting clear direction from where you are in your daily reading, spend some time in Proverbs.
