The Seven-Step Path to Better Decisions

25 Nov

Your destiny is determined by thousands of small decisions you make each day!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Do you have a system for making godly decisions?

In looking for links for yesterday’s devotional, I found an excellent on-line resource defining “The Seven-Step Path to Better Decisions.” Here are the 7 steps:

1) Stop and think
2) Clarify goals
3) Determine facts
4) Develop options
5) Consider consequences
6) Choose
7) Monitor and modify

One of the most important steps to better decisions is the oldest advice in the world: think ahead. To do so, it’s necessary to first stop the momentum of events long enough to permit calm analysis. This may require discipline, but it is a powerful tonic against poor choices.

I highly recommend you visit today’s Link of the Day to read valuable details about each of these seven steps.

Prayer Power
Most gracious and merciful Father, forgive me for the many times in the past that I have made hasty decisions that have been very costly. Thank You for Your patience with me. Thank You for moving in my life to help me slow down. Bless me to be able to discern the difference between faith and presumption. Keep me focused on what matters most to You. May I trust in You with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. Thank You Jesus. Amen.
