Risk and Uncertainty

Obstacles to Decision-Making (RU004)

Snooze, or shower? Bus, or bike? Some decisions are easy! Some, on the other hand, are not. What subject should I major in? Should I buy that dream house? Should I really take the rickety rope bridge over that canyon? When it comes to making bigger decisions, obstacles are everywhere. They’re in your circumstances, the people around you, and, more than anywhere else, they’re in your own mind.

The great thing is, how you make decisions is more important than what you decide. When you recognize and overcome these obstacles, you gain confidence, competence, and time. You can focus on following through with the decisions you’ve made and making them work for you.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Recognize common internal, external, and social obstacles to decision-making
• Consider your own cognitive biases and how they affect your decisions
• Make decisions more objectively and with confidence

Why take this course?

If you find making big decisions challenging, this is the course for you. You’ll learn just why deciding is so difficult and how you can overcome obstacles to decision-making in your personal and professional life.
