Isn’t that what we all want? To make the right decisions – every day, every time…
The following methods are supposed to simplify the whole decision making process.
Every night before you go to bed influde those following tips into your night routine:
Ask yourself: “What would XY do? ”
XY can either be your role model or your ideal you – the person you want to become.
Compare yourself to your ideal you
Ask yourself these questions:
- what do I want?
- who do I need to be?
- who am I now?
View yourself from a 3rd person view or a view from above.
Keep zooming out – your house, the street you’re in, the city, county, country, continent…. until you see the whole world.
This puts everything in perspective; you start realizing that everyone else has problems, just as big as yours or maybe even bigger. There are people not having enough to eat, not having a home, … but also people having their first kiss.
Another way to do this, is to view yourself as a character in video game. This gives you more control over the actions you take.
Physical exercise is crucial! Our bodies are not designed to just sit around all day.
The more you work your body, the better you can work your mind as well.
And for a fun fact: it also makes you look better 😉
Through meditation you learn to control your body.
If there is an itch, meditation teaches you that it is not necessary to scratch. Over time you will learn that you can just sit with it.
It let’s you control your actions.

- what went well today?
- what didn’t go well?
Continue by congratulating yourself for all the things well done.
This way it is more likely you will to do it again.
