Dear Liz, this article is very valuable because it highlights the process of making a decision. We would all benefits from checklists before making important decisions in our life. A friend of mine did a lot of research on decisions making (https://medium.com/@PvonH/the-art-of-unbiased-decision-making-38ac40264ac7) and a key finding was that we need a decision making process, much more than “only” knowledge about our tendencies and biases. And yes, emotions play a major role and I am curious about checking out your book about this.
Wish you all the best!
