I love this acronym. HALT is not so much about making decisions, but your surroundings when you make them. Here is the advice: Don’t make important decisions when you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired (HALT).
What should I eat? Not a good decision when you are already hungry as impulse will most certainly take over. I know for a fact that fatigue gets me and I don’t have full use of my thought processes, so not making important decisions when I’m tired is a no brainer. I can see the wisdom in checking yourself and decisions made when you are angry or lonely.
Take a moment to make sure you are making good decisions, at a good time. Remember to HALT!
