I hear often from people in recovery that they have a hard time with making decisions. I have found that having some methods to make decisions makes it so much easier for me. In fact, many of the tools we talk about here on the podcast are methods for making decisions. This week’s episode 171 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about five methods for how to make decisions for people in recovery!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of making decisions, why choosing not to make a decision is a choice, and actionable steps you can take right now to make decisions easier. Sometimes it’s not even the decision we make, but the work behind the commitment of that decision. I have learned that if I don’t know what to do, I will do nothing, and wait for something to happen. I have learned that I don’t have to always be the decision maker.
The five methods for making a decision:
- Ask yourself what your motives are.
- Ask yourself if this serves you.
- Flip a coin but don’t let the coin decide, let your intuition decide by focusing on the one you wish it was.
- Assume your decision will be awesome, no matter which choice you pick.
- Ask your future self.
I still can’t always make snap decisions all the time, but it is so much easier than in the past with these methods. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
