1.) Leverage Jeff Bezos' Regret Minimization Framework

Project yourself forward to age 80 and ask the following:

"In XX years, will I regret not doing this?"

If yes, do it. If no, don't.
2.) Ask Yourself, โ€œWhatโ€™s the Worst that Could Happen? Can I survive that?"

For most situations, it's "I'd fail, but probably learn something."

Or maybe, "I'd be out some money or have lost some time."

Don't let fear keep you in your comfort zone.

Big players take big risks.
3.) Talk to a Ton of Different People

I like to start with my close friends & family.

Know that it can be tough for this group to be objective.

Seek out other mentors, people in positions you admire, different fields, stages of their lives, etc.

Get a wide variety of opinions
4.) Be Willing to Face Discomfort

This likens back to #2.

When you face your fears is when you grow the most.

Knowing this is one thing, but to practice it is another.

"Your biggest failure is the thing you dreamed of contributing but didnโ€™t find the guts to do." โ€”Seth Godin
5.) Stop Caring About What Other People Think

Yes, you should seek advice from a variety of people.

But you must reconcile their advice with what you want/know about yourself.

People will always tell you what you SHOULD do, but it's not the critic who counts. Do what you MUST.
Making better decisions is one of the best skills we can develop.

Good decisions save time, money, and stress.

I'll be exploring how to make better decisions in an upcoming newsletter.
