This page helps you overcome the limits of short-term memory so that you can make better decisions.

Below, you will list the criteria you want to use to make your decision.
For example, if you were buying a computer, you might have criteria like price, ease of use, compatibility with software you use, and speed.
If you were looking for an apartment, you might have criteria like distance from campus, price, quiet, and security.
A common mistake people make is not thinking of all the important criteria. For example, some people look only at price when buying something or look at only one issue when voting for a candidate.
Another mistake is to look only a short term outcomes rather than long term outcomes.
Be sure to enter all your important short term and long term criteria in the boxes below. Then, rate the importance of each of your criteria on a 1 (not very important) to 10 (extremely important) scale. Do not underestimate the importance of long term outcomes.

When you are done listing and rating your criteria, press the 'Next Step' button.
