Decision Making

How much time should be spent making a decision? We make decisions everyday.  What to eat. What to wear. When to go to sleep.  When to go to work.  Some of those decisions are so simple, we make them without even thinking about it.  But what about those life-changing, make-or-break decisions that require much thought and deliberation? How much time should be spent with those? How much thought? There’s no right answer to this question because every major decision is different.  There are, however, factors that one can consider when making a high-stakes decision.

6 Principles of Persuasion

Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, the popular must-read book by Dr. Robert Ciadini, is more then just a book about persuading others to think the way you do. It’s also about providing powerful marketing strategies to help influence one’s thoughts, ideas, and new creations to others in a way that will get others to agree, understand, or follow along. With that, Dr. Ciadini, who wrote the bestseller,   has provided proven methods that can be applied to a plethora of life’s possibilities.  In this case, it's helpful to promote one's new or current business. 

“People's ability to understand the factors that affect their behavior is surprisingly poor,” Cialdini told eBrand media publication eBizine.  Most people can't explain the reasons they make a decision, but Cialdini understands why and he knows how to influence those decisions to get what he wants.  Now you can, too.
