"Mental Pause" a Quick and Easy Guide to Better Decision Making

Mental Pause is just another way to look at the process of calming down, taking a deep breath, dis-engaging from a stressful situation long enough to think about better options. In this presentation, I will go through a step by step process of how decisions are made and identify risk areas for emotional decision making. I will also cover topics related to perspective such as confidence, emotions, attitude, requirements and expectations. I will also discuss the concepts of "living the Serenity Prayer" and "taking Mistake and Failure out of Your Vocabulary". Finally we will utilize a Thinking Report to analyze the entire decision making process.
