Decision Making Stages


This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous. 

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

Does making a decision start with saying, “I’m making a decision,” or is it just a switch that you flip, and you just do it?

Neagle Code Answer

If a person is very solid in the decision-making process, they don’t necessarily say, “I’m making a conscious decision to do this.” They know that they’re doing it.

They’re in a stage past the idea of not making a decision. When they see that a change needs to happen, they immediately see it, and they make that change.

To answer your question you must first identify what stage of decision making are you in?

Some of the stages of decision making include:

1.) Identifying you have a problem that needs to be changed or having a goal you want to accomplish.

2.) Next, you may do research and gather all the information you may need to make your decision. You then may weigh your options and evaluate the pros and cons of your potential decision.


3.) Finally, you make your choice, your decision and act on it.

Remember, some people may easily go through these stages without realizing they are checking off stage 1, 2, 3 etc. It happens naturally. As you said, they just “flip the switch”.  

For others, it is more of a conscious process, and they may say “I’m making a decision…”.

When you make a change in your life, you did make a decision, because you switched from one thing to another.

That’s a decision.
