Dolly;Sep2008, Issue 455, p42
This article offers tips from life coach Lisa Phillips on improving one's decisiveness. When it comes to choosing elective subjects at school, Phillips says one need to choose subjects that one enjoy because one will be more likely to do well in the course if she is passionate about something. She also suggests experimenting with colours when it comes to choosing an outfit. With regards to extra-curriculars, Phillips recommends choosing a team or group activity. Another suggestion in decision making is to trust one's intuition.
