What drives you to make decisions? - Part I
When it comes to making major life decisions, we make decisions based on a combination of: What do we value with regard to the thing in the picture that we need to make a decision on? What are our underlying needs in relation to that decision? What are our belief systems around that thing in the picture that often becomes a part of our operating paradigm? In part 1, we look at how we make decisions based on our core values. Our values are a result of our habits. We form habits by repeating a seat of actions influenced by triggers with associated rewards. The triggers are often environmental or psychological i.e. what we see and hear around us, our internal narrative, and how we think and feel about different things. And that our environmental and psychological triggers are a direct result of our belief system. ——— Episode Timestamps: 0:0 - What drives us to make major life decisions? 2:07 - Values-driven job hunt 10:08 - The Personal Core Values Exercise 18:20 - Interesting findings ——— Resources: Transcript: https://ankurman.substack.com/p/what-drives-you-to-make-a-decision The Personal Core Values Exercise Spreadsheet: https://bit.ly/2LvmSpn
