An Important Key to Making Leadership Decisions
Let’s face it – we all get the same 24 hours in each day. No more and no less. How is it then that some people seem to successfully juggle a million activities on their daily schedules while others have difficulty managing the few activities they have. Well, this quote from Seth Godin hits it right on the head! It’s not that we need more time, we simply need to be more decisive in making important decisions.
The indecisive back and forth game we play out in our heads actually wastes more time than coming to a solid decision then subsequently planning out the specifics as it relates to that chosen decision.
Leaders are charged with being decision makers. Even though you may be tempted to delay important decisions, don’t punt them until “later”. More time to decide may not be your answer, but your decisiveness probably is!
What important Leadership decision have you been delaying lately? Trust your leadership instinct and be decisive, now!
