I like reading about how other people make decisions. A reader, Dustin Walper, recently sent me a link to a post he wrote called “Fast Leadership – Stop Thinking and Start Deciding.” He basicallly advocates a Gladwellesque “Blink” style of decision making, which I think has merit in the right time and place.
It’s a good post, but one thing I thought was missing was some kind of feedback mechanism that allows you to take stock of how your decisions worked out over time. Rob wrote a good post on this and I think it makes a ton of sense, though I haven’t implemented it myself yet. Might be time.
Also see this nice roundup of decision making links over on Lifehack.org.
