Informed decision making is important in the process of overcoming the various problems that affect human beings. From time to time, society faces challenges that prevent it from achieving its aims and accomplishing its desired outcomes in all the areas of life. Informed decision making is an attribute that is associated with the human mind. Even though modern generations have the ability to incorporate innovations and technology in the prediction of the future and in logical decision making, an individual’s ability to determine the correct or most appropriate approach towards solving problems and challenges is largely influenced by the thought process. The ability to make informed decisions at any given is determined by an individual’s thought process and their ability to weigh different possible choices and outcomes and determine the most appropriate decision and action. The ability to make informed decisions through the thought process is often referred to as the power of the mind. While the importance of proper decision making and the role of informed decision making in society and the workplace have been discussed and stressed by many authors and researchers, the various factors that influence the thought process and the idea of the power of the mind have not been widely researched.
It is important to understand the thought process and the power of the mind when trying to understand how informed decisions are made. According to Austad and Gendron (264), the overall health of an individual affects the functionality of their brain and may influence the ability of the individual to make informed decisions. The authors proceed to evaluate the various issues that affect the health of an individual and their effect on the thought process of the affected individual. They attempt to inform the public of the effects of physical and emotional wellbeing on the mind and the ability to make informed decisions. Their article provides insight into the relationship between mental health and informed decision making. Hsueh, Miriam, and Thomas (17041) discuss the issues of the thought process and informed decision making in the workplace and business contexts. They present an exciting approach that can be used by entrepreneurs to accomplish different outcomes in the business environment (17041). In many instances, potential business people are scared of the market because of its risks that affect the overall performance of an organization.
Successful business people are painted as risk-takers who can overcome different issues that affect their ability to accomplish their desired objectives. In this article, the scholars create an enabling environment for their readers to understand the problems that can be used to overcome their expected results (17041). The role of informed decision making and how it is achieved is discussed extensively. For the research, I intend to conduct a study of the thought process and the power of the mind because I want to better understand the factors that influence the power of the mind and the process of informed decision making. The research will help the audience acquire a better and deeper understanding of the power of the mind and proper decision making through the thought process. Understanding the interlink between the mind, the thought process, and informed decision making is a key step in the quest for better decision making in society, at work, and in the business world.
Intended Audience and Research Methods
The general audience for this research will include the general public, medical and neurology experts, and psychology experts. The findings of the research will be relevant to various fields, including psychology, education, medicine, business and management, and social studies. The academic audience for the research paper will be the course instructor, as the paper is one of the requirements for the course and the grade achieved will contribute to the final course grade. For purposes of acquiring a better understanding of the power of the mind and the factors that influence it, scholarly sources and credible articles on the process of making informed decisions and the thought process will be reviewed. Data will be obtained from past research on the thought process and the human mind, after which an analysis will be conducted to develop conclusions on the relationship between the mind, the thought process, and informed decision making. The research paper will include a discussion section that will detail all the inferences and observations made from the data analyzed, providing a conclusion of the relationship that exists between the mind, the thought process, and informed decision making. The various factors that influence the power of the mind will also be discussed in this section.
This research will have great significance to the psychology, medicine, education, and social studies fields. The findings of the research will provide insights into the thought process, the decision-making process, and the factors that affect decision making. The findings will enable society and psychology experts to have a better understanding of how these factors are related and how the thought process can be improved to ensure informed decision making. The existing body of knowledge on the human mind and informed decision making will be improved through this research, responding to existing questions on what influences the power of the mind, how the thought process influences decision making, and whether the power of the mind can be improved through human effort. Issues such as mental health and age will be discussed to understand how they affect the thought process and decision making.
