Use Both Emotion And Logic
Schedule Your Important Decisions
When You Ask For Advice, Avoid Your Own Bias
When you ask for advice, try to avoid your own bias. For example, if you’re having trouble deciding who to hire for a particular job, be careful what you say when you ask a coworker for their opinion. Avoid describing the person yourself because your bias may colour the information you give. Instead, give your coworker the same information you have (or as much of it as you can). If that’s a little much, you can ask simple questions instead, such as “do you think this job would be better suited for an introverted or extroverted person?” These sorts of questions can help you confirm if what you think is the best way to go.
