Benefits of decision journals?

Shane Parrish AI:

Decision journals offer several benefits:

  1. They provide a record of your thought process at the time of making a decision, which can be insightful when evaluating past decisions, as discussed with Gary Klein.
  2. They allow you to track the outcomes of your decisions, which can help identify patterns and improve future decision-making, as suggested by Daniel Kahneman.
  3. Writing down your decisions in your own handwriting can lead to deeper reflection and understanding of the decision at hand.
  4. They can help you identify cues or goals that you might have overlooked at the time of the decision.
  5. They can also serve as a tool for self-inquiry and curiosity, helping you explore aspects you might not have considered.
