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 29 2012: I think to answer this question we need to look through the frame of the individual. For some -work/life are marred together in one. What happens in everyday life would directly influence ones success in business. For example, wanting to be a more competent public speaker will influence your success and confidence in business environments but it is a decison you need to make in every day life - to practice.

    In order to make smarter decisions we need to have a goal that's achievable, a distant bubble. I have several distant bubbles, one of mine is this - "to create positive change through the privatized sector". My work/life are directly related to each other and I identify my work with who I am and what I love. This helps me make smarter decisions, and provides guidance to me over a longer period.
