Steps to making good decisions
This tower or pyramid illustrates how problem solving in the situations of life often unfolds
as we move from the facts of a situation to the factors which guide us in decision-making.
- At level one we ask: "What happened to bring us to this point?"
- At level two we should ask: "In what direction am I being pointed by values I personally
- At level three we should ask: "What principles do I try to follow in making decisions like
this? How do the theological positions I hold help me in coming to decisions on issues like this
- At level four we should ask: "How does my personality factor into the way I interpret events?
Are there external factors (life situation, political environment, people to whom I am accountable
at work or in social organizations, my close friends and so on) which are influencing me?"
