Hey Darius, thank you for this insightful post. Decision making is currently a hot topic for me and my business partner and he also wrote an article about it (https://medium.com/@PvonH/the-art-of-unbiased-decision-making-38ac40264ac7).
A major insight I took away from the research is to focus on the process. I found this quote useful:
> … however aware you are of biases, you won’t necessarily be immune. You should see yourself as the architect of the decision-making process, not as a great decision maker enhanced by the knowledge of your biases.
— Olivier Sibony
I see the same sentiment emphasized in your article.
Then again, it is hard to come up with an actual process and stick to it. Do you have any “formal” processes in place to make important decisions?
Thanks and keep up the good work 👍
