Chapter Twenty-Seven. Clear Goals and Preferences Make Choosing a Lot Easier

If you don’t know where you’re going, every road will get you nowhere.

H. Kissinger

Dee Moore was proud of her newfound decision-making skills and so was her husband. Dee no longer drove everyone around her nuts when she went into a restaurant, spending 15 minutes or more trying to make up her mind what she was going to eat. Dee attributes her new ability for making faster decisions to focusing on goals. “I know it sounds silly,” Dee commented, “but I realized my problem was that I went into restaurants with no preconceived idea of what I wanted to eat. So I felt I had to carefully scrutinize everything on the menu.” The new, goal-oriented Dee described her revised approach to restaurant ordering. “Now when I go into a place, I try to come up with general ideas of what I’d like to eat and what I wouldn’t beforehand. So I might say ’I don’t want beef or chicken but I want something spicy’ or ’I want something light, with a lot of greens.’ This approach allows me to quickly eliminate a good portion of items on most menus.”
