"Satisficing vs. Maximizing"

Develop your decision making

Herbert Simon has defined 2 ways of decision making: "satisfiers" make a choice when their criteria is met; but "maximizers" can't choose until they have analyzed all of the options. Maximizers often suffer through decisions. Click to identify your style and find out how to make better decisions.

Challenge

Done list

Develop your goal setting

"To-do lists" can motivate us to action, but they can also easily overwhelm. Try making a "Done list" to counteract this sensation. Before focusing on your to-do list, write the things you have already accomplished this week or this month. In noting your Done List you'll be more motivated to face new tasks.

Resource

SMART Objectives

Develop your negotiation

SMART is a common acronym to create clear, measurable goals. Whenever you make a goal for yourself, make sure that it is:
S : Specific
M : Measurable
A : Achievable
R : Realistic
T : Timely

Callenge

Reason and intuition

Develop your decision making

The next time you have to make a decision, follow these steps:
1 - Reason : gather facts and data that contribute to a rational decision
2 - Intuition : examine it... How do you feel about this decision?
Don't skip any step. You might come back on your decision if you don't feel like taking it.
