- Risk Management
Risk management as the name suggests is to manage the risk you are going to take i.e. thinking about all the possibilities – be it good or bad and then deciding how problematic that situation would be for you and taking appropriate ‘pre’ actions that could either avoid the situation or decrease it’s after effect.
- Making a decision
Once you have thought of all the possibilities next you have to choose one of the options between the various options that will work as the ‘solution’. Decision making can be done through two options –
- Intuition – When you follow your gut feeling it is known as intuition. Intuition is all based on your personal past experiences. Your intuition reflects the learning of your life. But, it is not always based on reality.. many times it is just based on your perceptions. Think about your gut feeling in-depth and then only take a decision. You should properly reason each course of your action.
- Reasoning – Reasoning takes into account all the facts and figures and then coming on a decision. You should weigh your past experiences and then form a conclusion. Ignore your emotional voice and think practically.
