1. Class Intro-Elevate Your Decision Making: Whether do wake up early in the morning or asleep for more time in a cold winter morning, whether to have a burger for breakfast or healthy, owed me whether to study for the exam or watch my favorite soccer match today because it's the final of the World Cup. Whether to get into a relationship or not. When you do purchase an old car or go for a new brand, whether to partner someone or hire someone for your business, whether to stay to current job or whether to purchase a specific entity in subscription package or not. You C or D is filled with a lot of decisions like some big, some small, some routine and some emergency decisions. But in oil, we take decisions every day and they impact our lives. What we are today. And then our decisions go wrong, be the business decision of partnering with the wrong person, the courier decision of putting the job at the wrong time, the relationship decision of choosing a person not compatible with you, or even a decision that you took for your self improvement to incorporate a new good habits. But when that doesn't work, we feel dejected between disappointed. We feel, in fact, I remember once I was badly scolded by my seniors at work because of a mistake that I committed. I was very sad in that instance and in a range of emotion, I happen to give my designation on that same evening itself. But later after a few days, I realized how wrong I was and what will I do without a job. And I happened to take back my resignation. I felt quite embarrassed and disappointed at the same time after doing all this. Usually this is what bad decisions due to our life. We take them in a hurry, but we later regretted, even in relationship this happened that we end up choosing people with whom you don't feel connected to. But later we feel crashed from within and regulate our choice. Bad decisions cost a significant value to our lives in every dimension. And hence my dear friend in this masterclass, we are going to discover what it takes to make a good decision. What are your personal specific triggers and tendencies that lead you to make a bad decision, as well as your drinkers. For a good decision. How should you handle and take a decision when you are confused between the two choices? You see this happens a lot in our life when we have to choose from two options. And we have to select one. Not only this, I will also share with you one very effective Vedanta decision-making technique that you can use every time for your big as well as for your small decisions. I will also share with you a matrix that you can use to align your courier and to find whether you are moving in the right direction or not. We will also together create a self decision-making profile for us as a class project to identify a strength or weakness and where we go wrong in our decision-making. Believe me, this step is going to be defining how life-changing for you. By the end of this class, you will be better equipped with knowing more about yourself and why you take salt and decisions and why every time components of those decisions remain. Really, will be a fascinating discovery. All this and much more about decisions are reading for you in this masterclass. Believe me, we are going to have superpowers and super learning together. Just a brief about the amputation. And I love doing peace-building and loved designing glasses on surface. And because I also wanted to improve on my decision-making, I have designed this class where both you and I are going to do a write together, do some activities to find insights, to make better decisions. I'm excited to share all that I have for you. Are you excited? Yes. Let's march onto the first lesson of this class. 2. Class Requirements: Well, I'm glad that you have joined this class and I hope that both you and I are going to have super fun and super learning together. But before we really match onto further lessons where we are going to scribble a lot of things I want to share with you what you need for this class, which is just a blank sheet or a notebook and a pen so that we can do activities alongside these lessons. Yes, you need both of these things and a bit of excitement, I think, will hit just a disclaimer that we are going to write a lot and do activities, but it's going to be fun and emotion for you. Just count me for that. So without further ado, get your pens and paper ready. And once you have that, we're going to go for the very first activity in the next lesson. 3. Activity 1-Scribble Your Good Decisions: Welcome to the very first activity of this class. And in this activity, I want you to think and write at least eight good decisions off your length, that this could range from your good purchase and shopping decisions to your business decisions to the money you have invested for your self-improvement journey, or even your relationship decisions. Whatever decisions that you think you have taken and they have paid you well-off in the emotional sense or even in the financial incentive. I want you to think and write them down. At least try to write eight of those good decision that you took. And to do this activity with the heart. And you'll discover in the latter part of the class that how essential was this tactic. So to start with, as I promised, I'm going to share my learnings and alongside, I'm also going to do all the activities. So I will share with you some of my good decisions and I will write them now. And you can also take clues from what I have written in part in your good decisions. This is by no means to make good decisions, but it's just an activity that we're going to do together. So for me, the first good decision that I could think as of now is that I have purchased a preload car that they say is a used car instead of a new car. That helped our family with two things. A, we now don't have to travel on a scooter with three people, which was the case earlier. And B, we got it of course, for a less price as it was a used car, so it saved on some cash as well. Second good decision that I could think of is of course, creating courses and classes and self-help and paste meeting because both activities I love doing and they helped me share my knowledge, connect with you, and of course, have some money. The third good decision, which is rather a funny one, is that I have restarted brushing twice every day, once in the morning, and once at night. After COVID, once I got back from work down to my hometown, I thought that COVID will last for a few days and I thought, let's not do it and let me enjoy for some time. So equated brushing at night, but COVID continue with for a long time. And so for two years, I didn't start and I procrastinated on restarting this habit. But after a toothache, I restarted this habit and it took a decision to continue it. So that was one good decision for me. The foot good decision I think was to quit even the occasional alcohol that I consume. Then the other good decision that I could think of is to choose a marketing team to do marketing for my courses, rather than me actively engaging and doing it, right, of course, helped me save time and let me help create more causes. The other decision that I could think of was to learn the theory of this reading from great face readers around the world. So initially I discovered this gift of intuition to read faces when I wanted to impress our goal, a lake. But later I realized I didn't have the basic know-how of how specific parts of fees like a mountain, like your lips lake ice tell about a person. It was just pure intuition out of which I was reading for my clients as well. It didn't turn out to be well, but because my dad insisted to learn, I happened to learn the theory of phase reading. And it does significantly helped me to learn the basics of the other two recent good decisions that I could think of. Choosing to go for the repair of a broken bone rather than purchasing a new phone. And of course, purchasing a high-end laptop or my editing and course creation purposes. So just scribble down your eat good decisions. Think of it. It can take time for you to think of those decisions, but I'm sure once you recall your past, there will be so many instances that you could put right in this activity. So pause this video now and think of your good decisions. It could be as simple as I shared mine to restart the daily habit of brushing twice, or even Jimmy writing or literally anything, just write them down as part of activity. We are going to later uncovered what it does for us. But in the next lesson, I will share with you activity two, which is also going to be super interesting. It can make you emotionally, but I bet it too will be worth it. So let's jump straight into the next lesson to decode the activity too. 4. Activity 2-Scribble Your Bad Decisions: As we have done Activity one, you may be feeling quite proud of yourself or you have made such good decisions in your life. But in this activity to, it's going to be exact opposite. I want you to write it off your bad decisions. As I told you earlier as well, types of decision could stretch from business to courier to relationship to anything that you think turned out to be bad for you. So let me start with a few of my bad decisions to give you hints and you can then carry along to do this activity in your blank sheet. So for me, the first bad decision that I could think of is I committed to being in a relationship with a person. On the first day itself, I was not sure that I could make it. And of course, things didn't turn out well, so it ended up with a lot of grandma. I want you to add more details with you, but in your sheet, you can mention full details about your bad decisions. The second bad decision that I could think of is something that I shared with you in the intro video as well. Which is I took a decision to resign from my company when I was scolded by my seniors on the same evening itself. Of course, I took back the resignation later, but it was bad at the first instinct. The third bad decision that I took was that I transferred my business website to oppose and I trusted. And I also made that person the co-founder. I was not shown about doing that, but I happen to do that and that ended up being wrong decision. Oh my God, this class is rarely tasting. But I want you to be honest as I am being honest with you. The other bad decision that I could think of is high-paid one of my fellow mates or commission of $30 for marketing. My question, but I didn't verify her credibility. Just for a fact. She didn't do anything and out of emotions. I did that, but that was a bad decision on my behalf. The other one that I could think of is I happened to purchase a big cost subscription of a platform where I can share my courses, which there was no user because I didn't have any follows, so share my coursework. So that again puts a bad decision and it led me cause significant. I won't share more of my bad decision now because it is really feeling awkward for me, but I want you to write it off your bad decisions as part of this activity, to pause this video and think of your bad decisions. Decisions where you feel disappointed, dejected, and where you feel that you still have regrets. Those are the decisions that you need to put them. Once you do that, we will jump on to the next lesson, because in the next lesson, we're going to discover the third aspect, which is going to be very interesting for you. So let's do it. 5. Activity 3-Scribble Good Decisions of Others: As you have done activity to, which may leave you feeling a bit bitter thinking about your bad decisions. And so not to feel that bitterness and get over it. I want you to do this activity. I know I'm asking you a lot to do, but believe me, there is a bigger cost to our list of bigger ending, a bigger self-discovery that you are going to unfold by the end of this class. If you just follow these activities. Activity three is to write and scribble for good decisions of other people around you. This could be the decision of your parents. Will you follow your role models, the sports person, your favorite actors, or any one that inspires you, prayed for good decisions that you think they took in their life that work good, maybe inspiring as well. So as always, I will start with me to give you some hints to write on your blank sheet. So when I think of the good decisions of those around me, the first decision that comes straight into my mind is when my mom was for him to get me and my sister educated in a good school. When you were at the age of 12.14. Because at that time we were in a financial crisis and other people in the family was saying that we should not study in a school. The fees were on the higher end, although it definitely came a good facilities and better teachers. She was formed and strong to make a study come what may, and that persistence, I think from her turned out to be a very good decision if I deflect it. Now, the other good decision that I can think of is again, off my mom who went with my sister for iron higher education after high school to a different place altogether than our hometown when people around us, what suggesting that my sister should drop to study for entrance examinations upcoming year. My mom again stayed home. She manage the finances for a study to the new college she got she took a new occupation for her and my sister is now rocking. That was again, a good decision, which I could think of. The third good decision that I could think of others is when one of my favorite cricket or Ben Stokes took a decision to declare any means in a test match against Pakistan. It was a fearless and brave decision. And they ended up winning that match. That gave me a lot of inspiration and life lessons. The last one again is of my favorite cricketer without coli, where he did something similar to Ben Stokes and showed his bravery and that of course inspired me. I use lots of cricket examples because I loved this game. But for you, think of for good decisions of others that could be connected to you or not, as I have shared ago, but think and scribbled them down in your sheet as part of activity three by pausing this video. Once you have done this and the previous two activities in the folder lesson, we are going to analyze what it takes for you to make your good decision. You are going to be bamboozled because you'll discover some common feelings and things happening with you whenever you happen to make a good decision or even a bad decision. So let's jump straight into the next lesson where we're going to do activity, which is going to decode a few secrets about your good decisions. 6. Activity 4-Analyzing Good Decisions: Welcome to this activity number four, where the task for you is to analyze three of your good decisions. So get to your activity one sheet where you have written eight of your good decisions. We will now get deeper to get insights into what we did, how that decision happened, and what feelings we experience during that process where we ended up making a good decision. So let me again begin with me to give you a hint as to how you can do this activity. So I'll go to one of my good decision, let's say to the ceiling one where I decided to restart my brushing habit. That decision happened because I was having a deep dive after consuming a sweet do at night. And at that instance itself, I thought, How is the time for me to restart this habit? So it was a thoughtful decision, are needed decision which I thought would help my teeth and me stay healthy. So think of what drove your good decisions. The other example where I have written, I purchase a car or a used car that again was driven by the need for it. Because I, my papa and my mom used to go on a one scooter in the cold winter night to various functions. It felt bad as well as it felt quite cool as well. So the need for it, and of course, a bit of thought into it went into making that decision. The other good decision that I got my phone repaired instead of buying a new one when it fell and broke off was driven when I considered the choice of it being repaired. So initially when my phone broke off while tracking, I happen to be very rash and emotional about getting a new phone. But later I heard from one of the retailers when I went to buy a new phone that this point also could be repaired, for which I gave a talk and I was thoughtful enough to look at this choice. Also apart from buying a new one. The other decision where I put the task of marketing the process, who are different team altogether was again, thoughtful and driven by their expertise. So that again, also proved to be good. We had a good decision, stay back and take back my resignation from the company was driven again by the need and by lowering my ego to realize it's pokey to be scolded if you have done a mistake. So again, it was thoughtful and I was fully convinced that app to take my resignation. So think bead down about what drove you to make the good decisions that you made. Was it that you are more thoughtful and fully convinced and you consider more choices around you? Or did you happen to be in a rash and ended up making a good decision? Analyze your good decisions here. And in the activity itself, we are going to unlock the secret to why you happen to make those good decisions. Just think of it. You will discover a commonality or common feeling, a common task that you do every day. For me, I discovered that all these good decisions that I made, war well, thought through. I was fully convinced and I have not picking them in a rash. What about you? Pause this video, find it out and find that commonality. And once you do that, we will meet in the next lesson where we are going to analyze or bad decisions. Believe me, it's going to be quite a revelation for us. So let's jump straight into it. 7. Activity 5-Analyzing Bad Decisions: Welcome to this activity for you where the task will use to analyze three of your bad decisions? Yes, as we have done for good decisions, we will identify now what makes our decisions bad, where we have gone wrong and better? Are there commonalities in our decisions that to back? So go to the sheet where you have done activity to start this activity fight, where we are going to analyze or bad decisions. So of course, I have to start with me to give you a clue. And what better to start with a decision on resignation that I took initially from my job. Later that I please join. This decision was dreaming when I was scolded by my seniors, as I told you earlier, and unable to be all that humiliation in a surge of emotion, in a rash. On that same evening itself, I took the decision that I will quit this job and I will reside. If I go deep down and analyze, I would say I was very rash. I took that decision in absolute emotion out of port, which I think I shouldn't have, which later of course, made me weekday. Still I get embarrassed thinking of that instance. The other bad decision if I analyze of myself, was the commitment in a relationship with one of the people whom I was not sure off at the start itself. Initially, I had in my mind that things won't work out, but still I went ahead and I think lack of surety, not being clear with what I wanted, and of course, getting emotional and carrying on with their decision cost into our decision to go back and think of your decisions also, not just have a brief outlook on them. I'm sure you'll get some commonality with my instances. Also. Let me analyze one more bad decision that I took, which was when I paid a commission to my fellow made for marketing the cost that I talked about an activity to. So when I started out creating my courses, I enjoyed the process of creating them. But when it came to marketing, I was absolutely dull as to what should I do in that house? Should I bring more students to my courses? Then I saw this feasible of my fellow mates that I discussed. And I thought that if I tell her to market my costs in whole new group, that will be absolutely awesome. To be honest. I just wanted to do it. I just wanted someone to publicize my cost as I have designed. And because they were no students in that, I was driven emotionally that I have to do something. And so she told me to transfer a sword and commission and I did that immediately. Once she told that she will do the marketing, you know, at that instance, also, she didn't inquire about my costs, about how she's going to do it, about the details of it. I took that decision in a rush to make things happen, but now I realize I didn't even verify her predictions credibility to execute that, I did make a follow up with her, but she gave various reasons and I realized that it was bad to begin with because I didn't verify. I just want it out of my emotions for someone to market my cost. But I didn't take action of verifying. You see again, this thing where I took a decision in a rush, lot of emotions. I didn't look at other choices and it led me to have and go my decision is bad. So one commonality that I absorbed where my decisions went wrong is that I took decisions where I was unsure whether it was highly emotional and I didn't look at all options and I didn't verify. So what is your commonality in all the bad decisions? Analyze and you'll get an insight as to what leads you to make your decision bag. You'll observe that there are always common triggers that happen to you. If at that stage you can figure that out, that will help you stop and not make that bad decision. And this is the other secret that you are going to unfold while doing this activity. So pause this video, analysts three of your bad decisions and look at the commonality. And once you do that, in the next lesson, we'll analyze quickly the components of good and bad decisions together very quickly that we can imbibe in our life to make our decisions better. So let's do it. I'll catch you and meet you in the next lesson. 8. Activity 6-Figuring out components of Good and Bad Decisions: Welcome to this activity where we are going to quickly ponder over the components that are present in a good decision as well as in a bad decision. Keeping these components in mind will help you improve your decision-making. And of course, my hand decision-making as well. Again, we're going to look at some of our decisions from activity one and activity two. And we're going to derive these common companies. This I think will of course be common between both you and me. So let me first do it for the good decisions that I happen to write inactivity ones. So if I observe my good decisions, the ones that happen to be good, I caught them through and I was fully convinced once I took them out of pressure, it could be out of need, as was the case of a used car that I took. But I happened to look at all the options that were available to me. Also, the component of ego and all of that was pretty less than the components of rash emotions, but critically less in the decisions that happened to be good. In my case. Is it same for you in your booth decision? Ponder over there. If you find a new component, put that in the discussion as it will help the entire community. Now if I look at the components of a bad decision in my case, the very first is when I took decision out of emotions, not backed by logic but backed by a horde. Both in the case of resignation or the extra commission that IP, in the decisions where you are highly emotionally, you just want to do a thing. It's like you feel like that is the only option and there is nothing else that can satisfy. That is the first signal that you should keep an eye on. The other company that I think was when we're not fully convinced within our mind of a certain action. You're not sure in your mind which of course leads to making a bag. The other very important component is when we don't look at all the options and we are blurred four choices. So as I talked about the phone that I got repaired initially, I just wanted to have a new form of months ago. I didn't even consider the possibility of a repair, but it was there. So your options and your choices are blurred in a bad decision. And this is a great signal that you should keep an eye on while making your decisions. The other very important component of a bad decision is you fail to verify. And at times you want to trust to make things happen even though internally you are not sure. So that again, is a good signal that you should keep an eye on whenever these components happen in your decision-making process, tinker with it. Because now i and u, both of these components and we had better aware of what can lead us to make a bad decision or even the triggers for a good decision. The awareness of this will help you improve in your decision-making process because there always are these common triggers inside us, which we haven't paid much attention to. But now we can do it. So do it, think over them. And if any additional components you think that I missed putting in for bad as well as for good decisions? I want your help to put them in the discussion section because we are on the journey of personal transformation together and we can help each other to get. So putting your thoughts and I have a very interesting segment lined up for you in the upcoming lessons where we are going to discuss how to handle confusion when you're making a decision. It's again, going to be something that will help you a lot in your daily routine. So let's jump straight into the next lesson. Once you do this activity, I catch you soon. 9. Handling Confusions : Good Vs Good Choice: I hope that you're enjoying the course and doing the activities that I shared. I know that this is harder because you have to write a lot, you have to think a lot. But it's important because we are working on assets like it definitely takes time to work on us and it will give us long-term benefit for sure. Another interesting segment is now what we begin, which is how do they make decisions when you are confused? What choice should you make when you're stuck? In this lesson, we're going to think over what can you do with your present it with two good choices and you have to choose one of them. Further lessons, we are going to discuss a good choice versus a bad choice decision. What can you do in that? And a bad choice versus a bad choice. It's going to be very interesting, unraveling all of that, believe you me. But let's first concentrate on this lesson where we are going to discuss how to choose between a good choice versus a good choice. What can you do about that? Think about when you are presented with two good choices and you have to make a decision out of it. Good choice versus good choice decision can come when you have to make a purchase decision. You can present it with two good choices, e.g. the milk that we consume last year was of good-quality. But this year we were presented with a choice. We can have a better comin, more nutritious, of course, from a better breed cows, but from a different seller. My father was both system to try this numeral. I and my mom wanted to stay back with the previous salary itself because that was also good and we didn't want it to break that street with the oil mills. However, we tried the new one, and the new one happened to be better. The other good choice versus good choice decision can come when two of your favorite matches are happening and you have to choose to watch one of them. E.g. I'm fond of cricket. And whenever two matches are happening between my favorite things, I love to go for a match where there are better commentators and of course, the possibility of a better game, of a better place. These good choices was a good choice. Decisions can come anywhere when you're making a decision to buy a car or scooter, to select your teacher, or even menu to select a particular road that you need to drive your car on. But things that can help you make a better choice out of the good choice is if you think, What can you give you a bigger long-term benefit and what offers you more quality? One that has a larger long-term benefit and more quality you can go for that choice. And along with that, if that joy somewhere aligns with your personality, that is an added bonus to go for that choice. E.g. my dad had an entrepreneurial mind senses. He was presented with a choice to sit in an already functioning and good revenue making electric shop by his dad with his brother versus opening a new antenna business which had the possibility of flourishing, but it was not very stable back then. He has to start everything from scratch. What he did was he took a chance in this new business because it was more aligned with his personality, with the fight he has to establish to build new things to face more challenges in these sorts of decisions where you are presented with a good choice. Go for the one that aligns with your personality and your mindset. That will for sure help you time in your life. And of course, we queue more better decisions. So think of your good choices versus good choices decisions. What parameters you use to evaluate the cost? Was it the quality wasn't the benefits? Was it your personality inclination? Or a mix of all that insert and proportions, again, is going to be a fascinating and wonderful discovery for you doing this higher. What if you don't find this video interesting? The next one is going to be very interesting for you, because in the next one we are going to discuss a good choice versus a bad choice decision. And how even knowing things to be bad, we end up making a bad decision, again, is going to be a revelation for you. So let's jump straight into the next lesson. 10. Handling Confusions : Good Vs Bad Choice: As obvious as it may sound, when you're presented with a good choice, which is a bad choice. What would you think? You would say to me, of course, a good choice? What question you're asking me, my dear friend. Let me give you a few facts about what we do and how we end up making bad choices more often than not. And how this thing that seems so logical that we always will make a good choice versus a bad choice is not so true. The first instance is this. I think you also believe waking up early at five in the morning is good for your health. But what do you do in a cold winter morning when you're given a choice to be under the blanket and just to continue your sleep for a few more hours. What choice you make them ready for me. I do see. I am not that I don't do hiccup and other cases. Remember when you are giving your exams and you have to study, but somehow the very favorite soccer match of yours is telecast it. What did you do? In fact, I remember I delete writing for this class by one day because I wanted to see my favorite cricket player will sharpen that in a particular match. Another instance that you can see in your life is going for a more tasty, yummy, unhealthy food instead of a healthy food. When do you consume more bodies in your breakfast? Or do you can do purport as the Friedberg Louis be czars in your entirety. We know that O2 is good for her, but why then do we end up having a ball good or pizza or a lot of unhealthy stuff in it even though we know that it is not good. Another incident that I can think of is when you go out drinking with your friends versus the family that is waiting for you to have a meal with you. What do you do using all these decisions? It's not so obvious that we make a good choice. We end up making a choice that is not so good and it's easy to make. But one thing that you will observe in all these decisions where you end up choosing a bad choice. Is that in all of those you're driven by your sense pleasures, where you are driven by or instant emotion, the urge to do than the need of doing it. Unfortunate it is, but we most of the time fall for our sense pleasures. And that is a great hint that if we can use, we will make more good choices versus bad choices. Usually when I fell for watching my favorite player bad, my eyes wanted to see him at any cost. I even sacrifice writing for this course. But what it cost me was one day of writing the course with stealing the whole production process by a week because I only shoot on a weekend. You see, my senses were not under my control and I didn't do the right thing, even though internally I felt it was wrong. Here we end up making a bad choice because it's easy to me than the good choice of controlling the census and doing the right thing. Whenever you feel they're disposed of emotion pushing you to do a certain thing over the right thing with a good choice by anything. Shut that voice in your head. At least try for that. Because once you start trying that in doing that, you will gain more control of yourself. And some of you will be able to control your mind better and make more good choices than falling for the distractions or the bad choices. I'm also trying to practice that. I'm not a master at it, but it has helped me. Now that matches still going on on the second name, but I shut off the TV not to watch my favorite players match, at least at the time when I have to shoot this video. So start slow. Take control over your senses and don't fall for distractions. Don't fall for temptations. Don't blindly follow what your mind say that pushes you to do. Pause, think, and make your decision. Then you are presented with a boot choice versus the badges. I'm sure you will be able to do better. And I hope that you're enjoying this lesson and the next one we are going to discuss what you can do and how you can handle when you have presented with two choices. So let's jump into the next lesson. 11. Handling Confusions : Bad Vs Bad Choice: Well, this is rather an obvious one. And where you find fewer incentives in your life is when you're face to make a decision between two bad choices. This means you have to choose between a burger or a pizza instance of your life, which are both high gallery, unhealthy, means that this means you have to choose between watching a movie at home previously versus watching a movie at a movie theater at a time. When you have to study, you know, my father has to lie to her mom often when she was suffering from OCD and a mental illness. My mom's condition was such that anyone who has to come to her room has to wash their hands many times. And if it doesn't happen, she will make wash hands in front of all. Whenever he has to go to her. He has a choice to lie that he has watched his hand versus actually washing his hands hundred times before going towards you see both of them were bad choices or he considered lying. That he has was his hand. Before going to the forum, my mom having a south Indian food versus a Chinese food chicken. See those both are bad choices for who? You see. We all know, and we do often that out of the two bad choices, choose one that is less bad and causes less harm to others. So there also you can think wisely about lessor harm that one decision that new they may have. Hollywood, there are always good choices that we should strive for. But in case you're stuck with two bad choices, choose one mer, there is lesser harm to others. That is an obvious insight you can use to decide. Now that we have done this segment of confusion between the good choices and the bad choices, which I hope you will have enjoyed in the next lesson, I'm going to give you a five-step queen. Another technique to make better decisions. This you can use every time and you have to make a big decision or even a not. So. So let's get into it and see what it has to offer. I'll see you in the next video. 12. Vedanta Technique-5 Steps Decision Making: We have done quite a lot of things by now than the activity to know what we do to take our decisions and how they turn out to be good or bad, the triggers of it. We now have an idea of how to handle the state of confusion amongst the two choices that we are presented with. But in this lesson, I'm going to share with you an interesting five-step Vedanta technique, which I learned from my teacher that will help you make better decisions. So the technique consists of five steps and the five steps. Step one. A very important step is to know all the available options before we make. This means not to get blurry on choices as I got when my phone was broken. So knowing all the available option, that's a key number one step. The second step is to know your personality makeup, your mindset, what drives you, what are your values? This means that even though being an engineer or Dr. is a good thing to do, you may not be driven by it because you may love being a sports person or your personality, me and client to be a YouTuber. Here, understand what is your personality makeup and what are values that drives you in life. Because in certain situations, the honesty pattern meters are also different for different people. So step two is to know your mindset and pink on those lines. Step three is to classify your choice into tertiary ester or a skirt means a preferable choice that can give you long-term satisfaction. Versus Prescott means a pleasurable choice at electable choice that can give you instead of short-term gratification, but doesn't carry a long-term benefit. E.g. having an apple for breakfast is a three-star because it has good health benefits versus having a chocolate cookie for breakfast, which is a fresco, which does not have quite good health benefits. Step three is to classify your choice into Austria squared or a prayer sky. Step four is to make conscious, deliberate decision, which means that even your subconscious should be fully convinced of the decision. That it's like you're not fully convinced and not half-hearted about the decision. Youtube, you see one of the reasons we made bad decisions. We discovered that we are unsure at the time of making it. This means that you may believe a choice to be good, e.g. waking up early in the morning. But when it is the morning your body fights against you not to wake up. This means that still you're not fully convinced in your subconscious of your decision. You are still half-hearted. So consciously think through your decision. Step five is one fewer took a decision, then remove all other choices from your mind. Because somehow someone will make you feel bad. Or in a hindsight, you may feel like I could have taken the other decision. So remove all other options from your mind once you made a decision. These are the five steps that you can practice to make better decisions. They have helped me in my life and they act as a good reminder. So try inculcating this board any big decision you did. And I'm sure they will guide you to a better decision. Now that we have discussed a good elaborated decision-making technique. In the next lesson, I'm going to give you a guide for the courier matrix where you can put in your decisions and see whether they align with your personality pedometers or not. It's again going to be a new discovery for you and validation for your good and bad decision. So let's jump straight into it and see what it has for you in the next lesson. 13. Career Matrix For Decision Making: Welcome to this video where I'm going to share with you an interesting career matrix that I have learned from my Google. My special guru submits. This matrix again will guide you specifically on the work that you do and whether it aligns with your personality or not. So the matrix is, we're making two lines, one vertical and horizontal. On the upper end of this vertical line, we are going to write in Hindi, which in English means ethical and moral actions. Whereas on the downside of this vertical line, we are going to write a Dharma, which in, which in English means unethical and immoral actions. On this horizontal line on the right end, we are going to practicality in Hindi, which means nature or personality. And on the left end of this line, we are going to write non-proprietary productivity, which means non nature or non personality. So if we see the top right of this matrix, which is quadrant one, we're going to put decisions of assets or of adores, that we consider to be morally good, as well as they align with their personality. E.g. we all know Elon Musk. He's quite interested in entrepreneurship, loves violet ventures with new technology and loves building company. He's into all that stuff and that of course, is a moral action. So it's courier and his adventure into entrepreneurship is what we can put in quadrant one, because it's a moral action. It says duty as well as it is something that aligns with this personality and that fuels him and that he loves doing. For me, if I think I love reading and video making like class creation, I can put that also in this first quadrant. For my father, he loves doing acupressure. It's his duty to serve his patients. It also aligns with his personality and it also fuels. And so that also, I'll put in quadrant one. Quadrant one will give us an activity that is your duty, that aligns with your personality and something that you love doing, and something that you should do because it feeds you emotionally. But everything doesn't fall in this quadrant one, e.g. I. Also was in an IT job which I think was definitely model unethical, but it's something that I feel doesn't align with my personality. It was something that I did that I think that it didn't fuel me. It was something that I was not very fond of, so I put it in second quadrant. The other thing that I can put in this coordinate is my father's investment in the movie business. Although that was fair and good to invest in, his personality didn't align with it. He was not interested in movie or movie business and unfortunately, he made losses in that. Often you will find decisions in this quadrant to be ones that are based on need. But not all, not all of them doing things that stands in quadrant one. Quadrant three, which consists of a non personality as well as a Dharma, which means performing unethical actions. And it also is something that doesn't align with your personality makeup. I can absorb this in my life and I happened to cheat in an exam. And I wasn't very good at cheating. Like some of my friends, I got caught. It was something that didn't align with my personality as well as it was something that was not good morally as well. These decisions that are unethical as well as doesn't align with your personality. You cannot continue that for a long time because eventually you will get caught. So make sure that your activities or choices of courier does not fall into this quadrant. Three, the last quadrant means you have the personality, you have the inclination towards doing some certain thing. And activity per se itself is immoral. Here in this quadrant, you can put terrorist and good thieves. They are great in handling arms. They are great in planning and strategy and what they do, but they're not doing a moral action. What do you need to strive for is somewhere to get your choices and decisions in quadrant one. Whatever you are doing should fall in quadrant one because it gives you a signal that you are doing the right thing, as well as it aligns with your personality. And when the activity is falling in quadrant one, It's something that you do out of now. So check whether what you're doing is falling in quadrant one or is falling in quadrant two. If it's falling in quadrant two, It's good. If in one even better, but make sure that it doesn't fall into quadrant three or four because it does not continue for long and will for sure get caught somewhere and you will later regret for that. So filling your choices and your current or recent, recent decisions in this matter, decisions of people around you in what they do and see if this matrix helps you confirm the choices you made for your work. It will for sure I'll give you a good validations. And insects pause this video and fill this matrix where we are now very, very close to making it to the end of this masterclass. And in the next lesson, I'm going to give you a class project that will be very helpful and insightful for you. So let's jump straight into the next class and see what is the project for you. 14. Class Project-Constructing Decision Making Profile: We are now onto the pen ultimate lesson of this class. And in this, I will give you a class project that Portia will help you in your decision-making. What I want you to do is I want you to upload this project to the project gallery. I'll make sure to upload mine, so check out my project also. Give you a feedback. And I will also love to see your class project as the class project is this, which is the document that I'm going to attach. You need to fill it out and you need to upload it. In this document, there are three themes, three columns that you have to fill it. The first column is where you need to write tendencies that I display a new display when your decisions go wrong. So for me, when I'm having this feeling of lack of surety or somewhere, I'm unconvinced. That is one of my payments. The other one is when I've wanted to do it. I get highly emotionally to do that. When that feeling comes that leads me towards a bad decision most of the time. The other tendency that I display, which of course is portfolio up to the upper one, is when I failed to look at all the choices. So these three are the ones that I display mostly when my decision tends to be bad. Again, you can seek help from your activity to bear you have written your bad decisions and recall those instances to figure out what tendencies you display and put this in the first column. Yours can be seen as my him or her. So that's not the point to where the second column is, where you need to write your tendency is when your decisions are correct and good. So again, starting with me for the good decision that I took, I do think it through and I was fully convinced at them. I was rational and I have looked over all the choices. The third column is, where can I improve? Again, this is subjective for you. For me, I can improve and asking more questions when in doubt to seek more clarity, which I don't generally do because I think what are those will feel about my question or my question is not that logic. The other thing that I can improve it is to stop, pause, and whenever in high emotions not to make a decision. This class project I will keep as a handbook and as a pointer in my mind, as well as in the project section to keep it as a reminder for me to make better decisions. I want you also to comment on it. Also upload your class project because we do learn from each other when we share our good things, as well as our not-so-good things. Whenever we write something, we acknowledged this, the area that we need to improve. So once you do that and finish your class project, click from your phone camera this image where you have done this activity I uploaded in the project section. I will wait for your project and I hope that it gives you additional insights and a reminder personally for you to make a better decision. And with that, we are virtually at the end of this masterclass and on to the final video in the next lesson, where we're going to celebrate. And if I have something more, I'll share more with you. So let's meet in the final video where I'm waiting for you with a hind foot. 15.

I hope that you have discovered quite a lot about yourself and your decisions that you have not paid much attention to when I'm with you. I also had a chance to learn more about myself and the areas that I can improve. So I can go from the bottom of my heart for that display. I think we both have been good partners together in this decision-making journey. I enjoyed your company and I hope that the decision you took to do that class was worth for you.
