One factor of good decision-making is to fully understand the situation and how it would affect your overall life. Be it a career move, or the decision to buy a house or start an investment. All of these are important decisions, ones that you should not be making lightly.
Whatever decisions that you are making, ensure that you have one thing in your mind = your own future.
Don’t rush to buy a car now because everyone around you are buying cars and you’re scared that you’d be left behind.
Don’t succumb to the fear that you need to buy your house now because of the rise in house prices.
Take the time to thoroughly think about your decisions. Measure out the good and bad in everything. Talk to people, but also remember that they may be slightly biased towards a certain decision, depending on what’s important to them.
Remember that advices can be both good and bad, depending on the person giving them and the person receiving them. A good advice for someone may be a bad advice for someone else.
So figure out what is good for you, and make the decision(s) that will positively impact your life, even if it may seem like a bad decision to someone else.
Because, as always, you matter first.
