Hari Om Vasudhaji,
While Swamiji was explaining about Arjuna's shoka and moha in Chapter 1, he said when one is under shoka and moha, one is unable to think in the right way. When thinking is not in the right manner, decision taken may not be right, and hence one cannot perform the right action. Karma yoga helps in chitta shuddhi, and Upasana helps in chitta ekAgrata.
So what I understand from swamiji's sessions (from Chapter 1), regarding 'steps to be considered while taking important decisions' is that when one's mind is in equipoise, devoid of any kind of agitations, one may be able to think properly, decide properly and so one is able to do the right action.
Prem and Pranams,

My 2 cents, is if you consider Krishna as your charioteer and you meditate or even have a gut feeling and it's his voice or your feel it is him guiding you, that's the right decision. Recently, I have been thinking that and been guided to do different things which are different from what I do usually. (Although some decisions I know are more "me", my "ego" but I feel compelled to do it, probably because of my deep rooted samskaras).

I agree with what Vanaja Ji wrote.
Practically speaking, the whole Bhagavad Gita is all about Arjuna having to learn about how to take the important decision about whether or not to go to war against his relatives. So Lord Krishna is trying to address this exact issue and he starts with the highest knowledge of the Self. This is needed for him and us to re-educate ourselves of our true nature.

To me, this is about understanding any issue from different perspectives. If you are in the problem, you cant see the solution. So you need to step out of the problem to be able to view and think of different options.

So a simple suggestion, is to view the problem from different angles or simply put yourself in other's shoes and see their perspective. Sometimes putting various options down on paper and working through it helps to see patterns and to clarify the thought process as well.

And more importantly, as chapter 2 progresses, Bhagavan will give us an introduction to Karma Yoga and it will later come in detail in Chapter 3 which will specifically address your questions.
Hope this helps.
