The best way to learn to make decisions is to learn from the decisions you have made. Set aside time for debriefing.

Learn to switch between divergent and convergent thinking. You need both to make effective decisions.

Avoid making binary (yes/no; either/or) decisions. Generate additional choices.

Choose among different alternatives. Brainstorm and evaluate additional alternatives.

Don’t assign special importance to dramatic pieces of information when making a decision. Avoid salience bias.
