Decision-Making Tips and Techniques

Here are some Dos and Don'ts which will show the way to good, well thought-out decisions

DOs DON’Ts
Make sure you eat starchy complex carbohydrates before meetings / exams / important events. Don’t make decisions right before meal-times, at the end of the day or when you’re hungry. Sleep on it!
Apply your knowledge about the relationship between sugar and behaviour in your interactions. Eg. if you know someone has sugar-related pathology, try to let them time their decision-making according to their readiness Do NOT eat foods which taste sweet but give you no glucose in your blood - in your brain’s search for a decision-making high, you’ll keep having it, but to no avail. While the calories pile on! Examples would be desserts with artificial sweeteners, or HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup)
Develop good habits - they’re the ultimate answer to unnecessary decision-fatigue. (We all know some invariants about others in the family - Grandpa’s walk time, Mom’s tea-time. These fixed lines save them and others unnecessary decisions. Develop your own beneficial invariants.) Don’t leave minor decision-making (what to wear, etc) for the morning, do it the previous night
