Today's theme is: 35,000 Decisions Journals
After looking at some frameworks for decision making yesterday, let's see how we can track and tweak them over time : 👉🏻
Approach 1 -You make 35,000 decisions a day. What's the easiest way to become a better decision maker? According to Daniel Kahneman - maintain a 𝗗𝗲𝗰𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗝𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗮𝗹.

And every decision has an outcome that changes the trajectory of your life in some way.Then why don't give our decisions the attention they deserve?

Cheers and see you soon 💫
