What is the key to smarter decisions?

My question to the TED community is what is the key to smarter decisions?

As individuals, how can we make smarter decisions in everyday life?
How is this different in business decision making?
Can we help others make a better decision or should this be done out of own will?

  • Oct 3 2012: various approch can be used, but in complex situation, one of my best habit is to make d├ęcision step by step, like this

    1) What are the next steps in the implementation of the decision?
    2) What are the criteria to be taken into account (standard, my criteria, performance ...)?
    3) What do I enjoy (means the results, the purpose, the common good ...)?
    4) What is the issue of choice (one or more options ..)?
    5) How to find more free will (statistically, people, my preferences, ...)?
    6) What mode of deliberation adopt (logic, intuition, choice, system effect ...)?
    7) How to confirm the choice (system effect, scope, ...)?
    8) How to implement the decision?

    This sounds complicated, but after a while it comes naturally. The approach allows the decision and listen to step back. Hence the advantage in complex situations
    Best regards
