This first week of April has flown by and we are rolling into a Holy weekend with Ramadan, Passover and Easter all falling this week – as well as a full moon this week. Whatever your spirituality I wish you peace and joy this weekend.

As I was trying to decide on the theme for this month – I thought why not make it about decisions?

Researchers at Cornell University estimate we make 226.7 decisions each day on food alone. And as your level of responsibility increases, so does the multitude of choices you have to make. It’s estimated that the average adult makes about 35,000 remotely conscious decisions each day. Each decision, of course, carries certain consequences with it that are both good and bad.

If you are a solopreneur or small business owner – making those added decisions about your business can feel overwhelming!

According to this same study we all have decision making styles – We are going to talk more about some of these in the coming weeks. Which one do you resonate with?

There are certain decision making styles and strategies that guide the process: 

  • Impulsiveness — Leverage the first option you are gives and be done.
  • Compliance — Choosing with the most pleasing, comfortable and popular option as it pertains to those impacted.
  • Delegating — Not making the decision yourself, but pushing it off to trusted others.
  • Avoidance/deflection — Either avoiding or ignoring decisions in an effort to avoid responsibility for their impact of just simply preventing them from overwhelming you
  • Balancing — Weighing the factors involved, studying them and then using the information to render the best decision in the moment.
  • Prioritizing and Reflecting — Putting the most energy, thought and effort into those decisions that will have the greatest impact.

Certain decisions may be better served by certain styles listed above.


This week – pay attention to how you make decisions.

  • Are there things you that are avoiding making a decision?
  • Are you subconciously making decisions by not deciding or taking action?
