Our lives are filled with big decisions and we don’t always give them the proper care and process they require. Whether or not we should move in with someone, get married or buy a house are decisions most of us will face at one point or another. Listen to today’s show to learn an amazing process to make better decisions about the big things in life.

In this episode with Myra Strober we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Learn a step-by-step process to making more thoughtful decisions
  • Confronting decisions when your head and your heart are in conflict
  • How to avoid making mistakes during the biggest decisions of your life
  • Anticipating the consequences of your decisions and how that can inform your actions
  • Understanding how our desires can negatively influence our decisions
  • How fear factors into our decision making process
  • And much more!
