18 helpful tips for better choices
At the individual-level (1-5)
I’ll start with decisions-making at the individual level. Your beliefs affect what you choose to do. Success means different things to different people, and you select which life goals you want for yourself, based on your life purpose. Choices are therefore key to success.
We all have different personalities, have been brought up in different environments, backgrounds, and cultures. Societal pressure and norms also play a role. However, if you know your life purpose, it will help and guide you in making agreements that you genuinely value.

Family and social life (6-9)
Your spouse/life partner (if you have one), parents, siblings, kids, and your close circle of friends often affect the choices you make. They’re likely to be people you share special time with, being important in your life. Relationships are delicate and need understanding. The choices that you make are likely to affect those dear to you.
With stress and pressure, people often lose their cool and behave in ways that they didn’t intend to. Saying things that they regret later on, and maybe even break valuable relationships. Speaking mindfully after reflecting helps to control anger and avoid blunders in life.

In the business arena (16-18)
Making business agreements are often more systematic and complex than personal ones. They also tend to depend on a process or procedure, having different people involved. An organization has its policies and needs to meet set goals.
If you’re an entrepreneur, self-employed, or a solopreneur, then you’re likely to be involved in decision-making, perhaps even being the only one making crucial ones.

Different people have different approaches to decision-making. At a personal level, it depends much on personality, perception, tastes, peers, and so on. There is no definite, right or wrong to it. However, taking due precautions and evaluating different possible options before selecting the best is prudent. The quality of the choices can affect your level of success, for the better (or worse)!
