Make Better and Faster Decisions

I can’t remember learning anything about strategic decision-making in school (unless you’ve taken an MBA I guess), but here’s a great strategy for how to make better and faster decisions:

We tend to get stuck in not making any decision because we don’t want to make the wrong decision. 

But that would be based upon believing there is only one outcome of your decision.

A strategy to overcome this is to consider the “two-way door rule”.

Think of it like a swinging saloon door: treat decisions you need to make as “two-way door” decisions where the door swings both ways, for example, if you step through the door and don’t like what you see (the outcome), you can always turn around and go back through the door.
