Great Points Include:
1) Decision-making affects us all differently because we are different people with different motivations.
2) Your values are the principles, rules, or beliefs that give meaning to your life. Consider what in your past has brought you the most happiness and a sense of meaning.
3) We should consider things from multiple perspectives: analytically, psychologically, worst-case scenario, best-case scenario, artistically & creatively, and ultimately deciding what is really important to us.
Questions To Ask To Improve Your Decision-Making Include:
1) What are the main problems you're trying to solve?
2) Do you have all the information necessary to make the best decision possible?
3) What is the opportunity cost for this decision (what will you miss out on if you made this choice)?
4) Does this get you closer (or further away) from your overall goals?
Ways to Beat "Analysis Paralysis" & Indecision Include:
1) Rank your decisions

As it promises, The Art of Strategic Decision Making by Peter Hollins encourages those who struggle with making decisions and shares best practices for making decisions quickly, intelligently, and safely. I highly recommend this book.
I enjoyed the parts in the book talking about cognitive biases and also decision fatigue. The WRAP method was so useful as well. Recommended to my friends and family.
That's been the case with this book. Some of the biases in decision making were familiar but most were new to me.
This book exposes the myriad ways that we make decisions harder than they have to be and offers suggestions to counter those.
I discovered a lot of useful advice that I personally will use in making future decisions.
This book is engaging and most importantly, it's helpful. It's one of the better books in a self help category .
